USFS to assess mountain trails


As the United States Forest Service (USFS) begins the maintenance of trails in the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountains this summer, they are partnering with Common Outdoor Ground (COG) to begin assessing those trails. COG, a community organization based in southeast Wyoming, will hike or ride trails with the USFS to assess trail conditions.

The Rapid Trails Assessment Program will be focused on Platte River and Savage Run Wilderness trails, according to the press release from Aaron Voos, public affairs specialist for the USFS Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest & Thunder Basin National Grassland. There will also be focus on Sheep Mountain.

Should there be enough volunteers interested, there will also be trail assessment for the Encampment River and Huston Park Wilderness areas.

For more information on volunteering for the trail assessment event, contact Chad Grossenburg, Recreation Management Specialist with the Medicine Bow National Forest Central Zone at [email protected] or call 307-745-2405. Those interested can also contact the COG Steering Committee by emailing [email protected] or message them on Facebook at
