A Montezuma County proposal for a supplemental parking lot near the popular Sand Canyon trail complex at Canyons of the Ancients National Monument is a long way from becoming reality.

The Montezuma County commissioners have set a public meeting for Monday, November 6th, at 1:30 p.m. near Sand Canyon to discuss plans for a parking area there. The meeting will be at the Lamb property, just east of the Sand Canyon trailhead on County Road G. The commissioners say they believe the Bureau of Land Management’s proposal for parking is inadequate and that they would like input on the possible use of the county right of way to address both the current parking problem and future demand.
