In reviewing the proposed changes to travel management and recreational activities, and the improvement actions for stream habitat in the Bear Creek Watershed Restoration Project (BCWRP) area, I understand that the project’s purpose is to protect the greenback cutthroat trout as well as to maintain a balance among the many trail user groups. The area in question has a well-established, recognized trail system that is important to the outdoor lifestyle for which the Pikes Peak region is known.

As an avid user of the Bear Creek area and Pikes Peak region trail systems, I am aware of the important balance we share with our eco-system. I have read fully through the proposed BCWRP proposals, and I support “Alternative B” as the action plan for implementation by the Pikes Peak Ranger District. I believe “Alternative B” supports the objective of protecting the greenback cutthroat trout as well as offering a balance between access and use of this vast trail system.

Acknowledging that change is needed in the area, “Alternative A” offers little
compromise regarding the ecological concerns of the project. “Alternative C” offers
limited compromise by significantly limiting trail access, including the complete closure of trail 666. I believe either of these plans hinders involved group's respective goals and could have negative long term effects.

I want to thank everyone involved in this project and look forward to seeing “Alternative B” move forward. I also extend myself as a resource in the implementation of “Alternative B” in the Bear Creek Watershed Restoration Project.

Thank you for your time,
