Logging operations beginning in Hardscrabble Road area

EAGLE, Colo. – Winter logging operations are beginning on National Forest System lands along Hardscrabble Road (NFSR 413) south of Eagle and are expected to continue through March. 

A contractor will cut and haul trees via the Hardscrabble Road Monday through Friday. The public may encounter logging traffic entering Brush Creek Road (CR 307) from Hardscrabble Road.  Hardscrabble Road will be plowed while the logging takes place. 

The logging is being completed to improve overall forest health, provide forest products to local industries, and help reduce the risk and impacts from wildfires. The project was approved under the 2017 Hardscrabble Project environmental assessment and is part of the White River National Forest’s Ten Year Stewardship Contract.
