Durango Telegraph - The fate of the Continental Divide
The fate of the Continental Divide

Durango cyclists, hikers and horsemen all have an opportunity to weigh in on the future of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. The Forest Service is making the argument that the 3,100-mile trail was created primarily for hiking and horseback experiences and that mountain biking should be banned.

However, the agency has announced that it wants to hear from all interested parties and recently extended its comment period by several months in the name of full disclosure. Comments on the proposal can be submitted until Oct. 12 and can be e-mailed to: cdnst@fs.fed.us or sent by mail to: U.S. Forest Service, attention CDNST, 740 Simms St, Golden, CO 80401-4720.
