New Study Shows Climbers are Main Recreational Users of Boulder Canyon Follow the link for more information. Thanks to all the volunteers who completed the surveys.
I have long believed that climbing should be a primary management focus in the canyon, including access bridges and a good trail network, resources that could be used by the general public as well.
Other than kayaking, the terrain in Boulder Canyon doesn't really make it a natural place for other standard uses; such as mountain biking or hiking.
It took a study to figure that out? Wow.
Oh, goodie, another astute observation from Captain Obvious. I hope tax dollars weren't used for this. Sheesh...
Well, I think adding some data to the conversation is invaluable. And imperative for basing the land management on the facts(rather than just feelings) Of course climbers would think they are the primary users. But I bet tubers would think they are the main users too. As would chipmunks. Plus there is a cool graphic on p 10
