BLM White River Field Office Releases Proposed Travel Management RMP Amendment
The Bureau of Land Management has released its proposed travel management area designations for the 1.5-million acre White River Field Office in northwestern Colorado. Under the proposed plan, the vast majority of the field office (1.29 million acres) would allow motorized travel on designated routes. Four areas would be open to cross-country motorized travel, such as the Rangely Rock Crawling Park. Twelve areas would continue to allow non-motorized access, including nine areas where non-motorized big-game hunting would be emphasized. The designations would not change the status of several Wilderness Study Areas. These area designations provide the guidance for future route-by-route designations, the next step for developing a comprehensive travel network across the field office. 

The Proposed RMPA/Final EA is available on the Documents section of this website. We've also provided GIS shapefiles and Google Earth KML files under the Maps/Data section.
