Press Release - Park County Wildcat Canyon Area

Wildcat Canyon Park County

Park County Commissioners have had many requests from various 4-Wheel Clubs and off-road enthusiasts to reconsider our position as related to the re-opening of Wildcat Canyon, Hackett Gulch, Longwater Gulch, and Corral Creek to motorized vehicles.

Even though the commissioners are strong supporters of all recreation within Park County's boundaries, "We are not the experts in this type of recreation or establishing the needs for this type of recreation.  We have left that up to the experts that we recognize as those individuals who manage public lands within the Forest Service."

In or around 2015, the County informed the South Park Ranger District that we have no interest in obtaining any easements related to the above mentioned areas.  We are inclined to support any management plan the Forest Service will put forward in those areas.

For editorial information, please contact Mr. Tom Eisenman, County Manager, at (719) 836-4203 or via E-Mail.
