Hermosa Creek trails and campgrounds could see change

San Juan National Forest staff leads a group along the banks of Hermosa Creek within the Hermosa Creek Special Management Area in 2015. The Forest Service released a draft outlining potential trail and campground closures and proposals this week.
The Hermosa Creek Wilderness and Special Management Area was designated in 2014. The Forest Service is working on a plan that must be finished in 2018 to balance the needs of different groups, including cyclists and ATV riders.
The Hermosa Creek Watershed, as seen from the south, was protected by an act of Congress in 2014. Officials with the San Juan National Forest are working on a plan to govern the area.
