Pole Mountain Gateways

Connecting our communities to the land with sustainable, non-motorized recreation.

Pole Mountain Gateways 

The purpose of the Pole Mountain Gateways project is to gather public input on the Pole Mountain Unit in advance of a broad-scale United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service planning project. In order to maximize current and future user experiences, the Forest Service will conduct an Environmental Analysis (EA) for the entire Pole Mountain administrative unit that will look at trails, facilities, parking, signage and other aspects of non-motorized recreation.

The project is named Pole Mountain Gateways to reflect the area's designation as a Wyoming Forest Gateway Community Priority Area, which resulted from the implementation of the National Trails Stewardship Act.

User submitted data will help gain a better understanding of preferred public destinations and usage throughout Pole Mountain. Public conversations are being planned to discuss the vision for Pole Mountain, shared values, and priority areas.
