Dragon Wash trails

RANGELY I The BLM’s White River Field Office is releasing an environmental assessment for public review and comment on the Dragon Trail Interpretive Sites Project. The purpose of this action is protecting important cultural sites while providing information and additional services to the public.Three rock art sites along the Dragon Trail southwest of Rangely, Colo., receive frequent and above average visitation. There has been occasional vandalism to the rock art. The sites require renovations to improve site protection.

The sites are monitored by BLM archaeological and law enforcement staff.The BLM is seeking initial public comments as it conducts an assessment of the proposal.
