Trail Study Area Planning
What are Trail Study Areas (TSAs)?
The Visitor Master Plan (VMP) set goals that establish an overall framework for providing visitor services and protecting resources on OSMP lands. TSA plans were identified in the VMP as area-specific plans to establish implementation strategies that improve the visitor experience and provide a sustainable trail system while protecting natural and cultural resources. Community collaboration and input is critical to successful TSA planning. Three TSA Plans have been completed and are being implemented, the Marshall Mesa / Southern Grasslands TSA, the Eldorado Mountain / Doudy Draw TSA, and the West TSA.
