Colorado's backcountry is human-powered recreation paradise. For paddlers we enjoy great rivers like the Animas or dropping Adrenaline Falls on Lime Creek. For those who enjoy other pursuits it may be mountain biking the Monarch Crest trail, backcountry skiing at Berthoud Pass, bouldering at Independence pass, or simply hiking up Mount Elbert--Colorado's backcountry has it all. Right now, through the Colorado Roadless Rule, the U.S. Forest Service is trying to come up with a plan to take care of these places. We can help make sure they are taken care of the right way by giving the Forest Service some input from the human-powered outdoor recreation world.
American Whitewater encourages all paddlers to weigh in.
