Colorado: Equestrian Use in Craig

Moffat County is a vast, remote region in northwestern Colorado where you can experience nature in unrestricted settings that have remained much as they were thousands of years ago.

Our spring, summer, and fall seasons are delightful, our winters offer pure fun - cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing, sledding, hockey, ice skating, and ice fishing, for starters. At day's end, the tales you tell will be your very own - unique memories to take home.

Craig, the county seat, is the economic center for the large area. In the summer, the area has warm summer days with cool nights, and winter brings moderate days with cold nights. Average annual precipitation is 14 inches.

Remember how simple life used to be? Remember when a "long drive" meant moving cattle into the high country, when "formal wear" meant taking your cowboy hat off, and when "espresso" meant mail delivered by Pony Express?

If you don't, maybe it's time to slow down and ride the trail less traveled. Moffat County has that simple life you've been hankerin' for.

Moffat County has over 1.7 million federally-managed (BLM) acres of expansive rolling sagebrush-covered hills, semi-arid mountain peaks, spectacular sandstone canyons, whitewater rivers, wide valleys, and colorful badlands that serve as host to all types of outdoor recreation. Big game viewing and hunting are the best in the nation.

Equestrian Activities

Equestrian activities on public lands in Little Snake Resource Area generally occur on existing roads and trails or open country areas. There are no BLM trails which are limited to equestrian use at this time.

The popular equestrian areas on public lands include: Browns Park, Sand Wash Basin, Little Yampa Canyon Special Recreation Management Area, and the Cold Springs Mountain, Diamond Breaks and Cross Mountain Wilderness Study Areas.

Information on existing roads and trails, and water sources in these areas may be found on the Little Snake Resource Area transportation or 1:100,000 scale maps. USGS topographic maps are useful for more detailed information.

Specific trail guides are not available.

Additional information may be obtained from the Craig Chamber of Commerce
