This holiday season, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) declared it is welcoming citizens to discover peace, health, happiness, and peace in Colorado’s state parks.
The holiday season is often busy and approaching, but the moments in “Banana Belt” weather are yet to be enjoyed. This makes December an ideal time to breathe in and move before changing bikes and boots for skis and snowshoes. It’s the time to express gratitude for all the natural wonders that can be found around us.
CPW provides an interactive map of Colorado’s State Parks that are situated primarily to the east of the I-25 corridor and toward our northern, southern, and western state boundaries, according to a report by the Ark Valley Voice.
Located in Salida at 307 West Sackett Ave., the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA) is a landmark collaboration that is a joint venture between Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) as well as the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS).
The AHRA offers a vast range of trails for all outdoor enthusiasts, from hikers to mountain biking and off-road vehicle drivers. They have details about the area, online brochures, online brochure maps, and other information about how hikers can enjoy the great outdoors.
E-bikes seem to be all over the place on the street or on trail. They vary in size in terms of speed, type and size and frequently carry cargo and even children. While rules of etiquette are being a part of the social norm, common courtesy is essential. CPW provides a few guidelines on what is permissible for electronic bikes on land that they own.
Remember that wildlife is moving all year long as well, both in the county , and within the urban-wildlife corridors of our cities as well as rivers and towns.
A motorbike can cause wildlife to be scared faster than a hiker on the move therefore being vigilant and alert prior to approaching can lower the risk of being involved in an accident.
