Misunderstanding continues between the Montezuma County Commissioners and public lands officials over a golden eagle’s nest located in the Phil’s World mountain biking area east of Cortez. The area is under consideration for expansion, but the Bureau of Land Management is planning to route the new trails around this eagle’s nest. There are a few different options for the size of that trail re-route, and the Montezuma County Commissioners want the trail to go as close as possible to the nest to maximize the size of the expansion.
