Local CPW and the BLM lands are officially open for your riding, running and hiking pleasure. On May 1, wildlife officials lifted the ban that was in place on certain public lands in order to protect wintering herds.
This winter has wreaked havoc on more than our lower backs. The San Juan National Forest reports that heavy snow, in addition to wildfires, dead and dying trees, and debris flows over the last year have taken a toll on popular recreation areas.
Speaking of out-exercising, the Death Ride returns to the scenic San Juans on June 8-10. And it’s a good thing the scenery is good – the ride covers 235 miles over three days with 17,000 feet of elevation gain over five mountain passes.
