Camp O' Fun

Proposed Use of Ute Indian Reservation Land
Marker A: Base Camp/Office
We located the Base Camp closest to the urban area so that it would be easier to people to arrive. It is located on a flat land so we could build a parking lot and the headquarters building. The elevation of the camp is 6,730 ft above sea level.
Marker B: Hiking
We made a lot of trails but the most popular are Main Pine Trail and Johnson's Trail. They are both completely different levels of difficulty. Main Pine Trail is going to be the easiest trail, it is going over plains and bridges. The change in elevation for the trail goes from 6,250 ft to 6,750 ft for the end. The change is 500 ft in elevation. Johnson's Trail is going to be the hardest trail there is because it is going through the very bottom of the canyon. The elevation change from the beginning to the end is starting at 5,700 ft and ends at 6,354 ft. The change in elevation is 654 ft.
Marker C: Canoeing/Rafting/Kayaking
We chose to do rafting in the camp sight because it has a decrease in water elevation which mean there will be small drops and lots of twists and turns which will make it lots of fun. The length of the trip is 4.5 miles of rafting.
Marker D: Mountain Biking
This activity is called the Whites Trail and it is going up the less steep side of a canyon. We put it in the location to make it a more difficult activity for the campers and to challenge them with the less steep side of the canyon. But it also goes through gulches and flat lands to make it easy too.
