Open Space officials cited for marking trail

ASPEN (AP) - Two Pitkin County Open Space and Trails board members have been cited by the U.S. Forest Service after they were accused of marking a trail leading onto property that is the subject of a proposed land swap.

Hawk Greenway and Anne Rickenbaugh are accused of damaging a forest. The fines total $850.

According to the Aspen Times, Greenway and Rickenbaugh are accused of trying to establish a contested route onto BLM land at the base of Mount Sopris, near Carbondale, by marking trees.

Greenway said he is trying to disprove claims that the BLM property is mostly inaccessible to the public.
