The Emerald Mountain Park Master Plan is a site-specific development and management plan for the 586-acre Emerald Mountain Park (EMP). EMP is owned by the City of Steamboat Springs. The Master Plan ensures that new trails and recreational facilities preserve and protect wildlife and natural habitat areas, fill existing recreation gaps in the community, serve youth and families, and are complementary to recreational use of adjacent public lands.
