Larimer County Natural Resources is updating the management plan for Devil's Backbone Open Space in order to guide future management and operations at the property. The current plan was adopted in 2004. Since that time there has been a significant increase in visitation that warrants changing daily operations and management. Proposals include a new trail and expansion of the existing trailhead to help accommodate increased recreation demand while protecting natural and cultural resources.
This update aims to address:
The process to update the management plan began in February of 2014 and will continue through February of 2015, when the final plan will be adopted, and implementation will begin.
We want to hear from you throughout this process! If you'd like to receive updates on the project and offer feedback on recommendations sign up to receive email updates below. The best way to give feedback is to attend the open houses associated with the process.
Tell us what you think at the Trailheads! Staff will be at the Devil's Backbone Trailhead on September 6, 2014, and at the Blue Sky Trailhead September 20, 2014, from 9 a.m. - noon. We will be looking for feedback on the draft plan at those events. Drop by before your hike or ride and let us know what you think!
