[ARCHIVED] Emerald Mountain Hazardous Tree Mitigation - UPDATED 9/27

The City of Steamboat Springs (City) is collaborating with the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) to implement a Hazard Tree Mitigation Project on Emerald Mountain this summer. Work began in July and is expected to last through mid-October 2016. The City will be implementing the work plan identified in the Emerald Mountain Forest Management Plan on the Orton and Gossard Open Space parcels. This project will complete the planned tree removal operations of beetle kill trees that began in 2010.

Helicopter logging took place on Monday, September 26th to extract logged trees from the Morning Gloria trail corridor. The helicopter logging process is now complete and Emerald Mountain has reopened for recreational use.

Existing trail closures remain in effect including:

• Root Canal
• Upper & Middle Stairway to Heaven
• Upper No Mo’ Bluez

The upper portion of Morning Gloria will reopen on Wednesday, September 28th.
