As Ian noted above, it should be made very clear to everyone that the confusion about ownership had nothing to do with a "land grab" by the neighbors at 4 Falls, but was the result of a land survey correction and subsequent failure by the USFS to update their survey in a timely manner. The neighbors were probably just as surprised with the results as anyone else and deserve to be treated with respect.
It should also be noted that the neighbors may have lost significant acerage in the process and may consider themselves victims of an unjust government action. Likely they have authority to prosecute anyone trespassing on their property under Colorado law.
Stout work, Ian. This kind of work is the best when it comes to clarifying access.
