Well, that, and the Natural Gas pipeline you'd have to climb over!
The hurdles you speak of are excuses. I can see that I might end up much more involved in this process. It might, or might not help that I live so close.

O Gnarly Zukster-

You have no idea just how welcome your involvement will be. Be at the September Boulder Ranger District OHV Committee meeting!

On the Boulder Wagon Road, I know the uphill battle right now would make a fight not worth it, and probably counterproductive (it would steel the opposition). On the other hand, were the road to be optimized as a multiple-use (hiking, mtn. biking, skiing, OHV), year-round interpretive route of Colorado railroad and pioneer history (which remnants are visible along the entire route), and were it to be provisionally open to motor vehicles conditional on the level of maintenance, temporarily closed until urgent repairs were performed, then reopened - it might stand a chance, but not this year.

If it's gonna be done, it's gotta be done right, environmentally (totally doable) and with respect to all users (totally doable).
