3 Disclaimer Survey involved only Resource Managers I am not a researcher, I just needed basic information. This survey was done to get BASIC information on existing conditions of all 14ers in Colorado 1. Fast 2. Inexpensively 3. Easy Data gathered qualitative in nature.

4 Planning Summit Purpose Resource managers and partner organizations. Discussion about Fourteeners Visions, Values, Goals. Issues, Concerns Existing conditions. Desired Future Conditions Current management practices. Additional Management tools.

5 Natural Resource Managers Survey 48 question survey asking Resource Managers for qualitative input about Existing Conditions on Colorado s Fourteeners

6 14er Distribution Kit Carson added post 14er Summit Meeting 44 Forest Service 28 Wilderness 3 combined wilderness/non-wilderness 13 non-wilderness 3 BLM 1 Park Service (Recommended Wilderness) 6 mostly private

7 Management Categories of Colorado s Fourteeners 7 Wilderness Partial Wilderness Non-Wilderness Mostly Private

8 Data Collected thru Survey Wilderness Partial Wilderness Non-Wilderness Non-Wilderness (No Data) Mostly Private (No Data) Wilderness (No Data) 3

9 Survey Success Overall 77.7% Survey Success Public Lands 87.5%

10 Sample Survey Question 3. Level of Knowledge Regarding This Peak: (Check the item that best describes your experience) Response % Response Total I Have Never Ventured Onto This Peak/Information From Secondary Sources 19% 8 I Have Been on THE Major Access Route Only 40.5% 17 I Have Been on ALL Reconstructed/Major Access Routes 4.8% 2 I Have Been on One Other Route Besides the Major Routes 14.3% 6 I Have Been on Most or All of the Advertised Routes 14.3% 6 I Have Been all Over the Mountain and Am Intimately Familiar with Conditions 7.1% 3 Total Respondents 42 (skipped this question) 1

11 Boots on the Ground (Percent of Respondents) Knowledge of Mountain Never Ventured on Mountain Primary Access Route Only All Major Access Routes 14.3 All Major Access Routes Most or All Advertised Routes All over the Mountain

17 Condition of Routes User Created (58 Routes) Stable-Not Eroded 13 Stable-Some Erosion 15 Unstable-obvious erosion 17 Unstable-heavily damaged # of routes Engineered (29 Routes) Closed/restored (10 Routes) Stable-Not Eroded 7 Stable-Not Eroded 2 Stable-Some Erosion Unstable-obvious erosion Unstable-heavily damaged # of routes Stable-Some Erosion Unstable-obvious erosion Unstable-heavily damaged # of routes 5

18 Routes Needing Immediate Attention Out of the 58 usercreated routes known, 30 are unstable and need immediate attention.

19 Level of Development on Standard Route Mirrors Condition Why? Conditions on Ground Driving Actions Rather than Management Goal/Objective driving Conditions/Actions Development in Wilderness same as Non-Wilderness. Level of Development Developed Trail (Numerous structures) Minimal Continuous Tread (few structures) Intermittent Tread Marked Route No Tread percentage

20 Development on Standard Routes 70% of developed routes are at highest level of development.

21 Maintenance is Critical Majority of engineered routes and closed restored routes are stable with some erosion. These are likely to move towards unstable without adequate maintenance.
