From Gunnison Trails. The weather is warming and options for trails are limited but we need to be smart about this or the option could go away.Trail users, we've been hearing from a LOT of people out there that the Base Area at Hartman Rocks is busy (like there's no pandemic or social distancing measures busy) and that many of the restrictions currently in place for COVID-19 are being ignored.

- Recreate ONLY with people you live with - NO group rides
- Ride or run to the trailheads if you can. Consider parking in town and riding out to Hartmans, or come ready to ride and limit your time at the trailhead
