Re: [hr100] Update re Wasatch Trail in Bear Creek Telluride
- Thanks Dick.
I would be glad to talk to him. I assume that he means the trail would qualify as an RS 2477 road under the 1866 mining law. We are pursuing that theory as well as a prescription or adverse possession in favor of the public theory.

KEN, THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS. I DO NOT HAVE ANY PHOTOS,
HOWEVER I HAVE SPOKEN WITH A FRIEND THAT IS WITH THE BLM
OUT OF DENVER AND IS FAMILIAR WITH THIS CLOSURE.
HIS RESEARCH INDICATED THAT THE WASATCH
TRAIL IS AN OLD ROAD EASEMENT ( NOT SURE OF THE DATES)
AND IT IS QUESTIONABLE IF CLOSURE IS LEGAL?
IF THIS INFO IS HELPFUL OR YOU NEED ADDITIONAL INFO, I
COULD GET HIS CONTACT INFO TO YOU.
BEST WISHES, DICK CURTIS ( HR100 RUNNER)
