This post contains as many of the conservation easements that are held for city of Durango lands as I could find. For now, the conservation easements in this post includes those for Horse Gulch, Dalla Mountain Park, Overend Mountain Park, Bread Express and Oxbow Park and Preserve.

The attached Baseline Documentation for the Horse Gulch parcels does contain a conservation easement at the end of each one.

Most noteworthy is the conservation easement for Overend Mountain Park, which does not appear to prohibit motorized vehicles.
