- Be cool and respect your fellow trail users out there. Slow down and give a ‘howdy’
- Stay on trails and ride and hike THROUGH the muddy/snowy sections (going around in the sage quickly leads to wider trails and go-arounds)
- Keep a close eye on your dog at the trailheads, and be sure to clean up after your pup
- Trails SOUTH of Powerline Road (Bambi’s, Sawtooth, Back-In, 9-0, Outback, Skull Pass and Aberdeen) remain CLOSED to protect the Gunnison Sage Grouse.
Trail season has begun here in Gunnison! See below for Signal Peak trail info, which remains CLOSED to bikes until May 1. A HUGE thanks as always to our local BLM for getting Hartman Rocks ready for the season. Stay tuned for upcoming workdays, and hit us up on Facebook or shoot an email to [email protected] with any trail observations. We’ll see you on the trails!
