Hot Spot

West Maroon Pass Trailhead/Schofield Park 2019

Crested Butte, CO

The Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness area is one of the most popular Wilderness areas in the state of Colorado and faces many impacts because of this. We have worked with the Aspen Sopris Ranger District of the United States Forest Service for the last two years to address impacts related to the Conundrum Hot Springs area within the Wilderness, but the southern border presents a different set of impacts and different communities within the Gunnison Valley.  A diverse set of stakeholders ranging from local government, university programs, federal land managers, and other stewardship groups will come together for educational programs, strategic communication planning, and much more.
