RIMS Submission

We would like to add your report to the RIMS database. RIMS stands for Recreational Impact Monitoring System and is a service of the Colorado Mountain Club. The RIMS system maintains a database of backcountry status reports that is accessible by land management agencies and can prove invaluable in documenting conflicts between motorized and non-motorized recreational uses. More information about RIMS may be found here.
