Know Before You Go: Projects on the Sulphur Ranger District

Pass Creek Deck Sales: Large decks of timber were left behind by a previous timber sale and have been sold to a local mill. Work on this project has started on Kauffman Creek Road (NFSR 121.1)  Contractors will be processing, skidding and moving logs and other woody material. This work will take place right next to the road so use extra caution in this area.  Please give heavy equipment and logging trucks extra room and expect delays. Hauling is limited to week days, however, heavy equipment will be active in the area seven days a week. See a map

Roadside Hazard Tree Reduction Projects: The Sulphur Ranger District is in the process of removing hazardous trees along more than 170 miles of national forest system roads. Work in 2014 will focus on Cabin Creek Road (FSR 112); Water Board Road (FSR 128) and Moffat Road (FSR 139).

Leland Creek Fuels Treatment Project: Roughly 130 acres of hazardous fuels will be cut in this forested area that borders the Town of Winter Park. More than 70 percent of the wood is merchantable and will be removed for use by the wood products industry. Trails reconstruction and realignment projects are planned in the area after work is complete. This project is likely to start in 2015. See a map.

Seven Sisters Timber Sale: Work on this timber sale is expected to start in 2014. It will help to reduce hazardous fuels in an area heavily impacted by the mountain pine beetle epidemic. Cutting and hauling will be active throughout the summer. See a map.
