The documents are also available on CD by calling the San Juan Public Lands Center at 970-247-4874 or the Dolores Public Lands Office (DPLO) at 970-882-7296, or you may pick one up at the at the following locations:
San Juan Public Lands Center, 15 Burnett Court, Durango, CO 81301
BLM Tres Rios Field Office and the Dolores Ranger District (i.e., DPLO), 29211 Hwy. 184, Dolores, CO 81323

This area is a key recreational destination for millions of public lands visitors. It encompasses the epic Alpine Triangle area, the prized Rico-Dolores trails, Durango's mountain bike mecca and snowmobiling at Durango Mountain Resort, Purgatory, Missionary Ridge and numerous trails out of Durango and Pagosa Springs.
Sadly, the new plan will mandate the complete elimination of motorized use in any Recommended Wilderness Areas, so that's bad. The plan does allow mountain bike use in RWAs under certain conditions, so that's good.
The agencies have different procedures for releasing their Records of Decision. BRC, as well as Colorado's snowmobile and OHV advocacy groups are reviewing the plan for possible appeal/protest/objection opportunities.
