                                        REPORT

                                        [To accompany H.R. 688]

                           [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, to which was
                  referred the bill (H.R. 688) to adjust the boundary of the Arapaho
                  National Forest, Colorado, and for other purposes, having consid-
                  ered the same, reports favorably thereon without amendment and
                  recommends that the bill do pass.
                                            PURPOSE
                    The purpose of H.R. 688 is to adjust the boundary of the Arapaho
                  National Forest, Colorado.
                                     BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    Between Rocky Mountain National Park and the Bowen Gulch
                  Protection Area on the Arapaho National Forest in the State of Col-
                  orado is a 10-lot subdivision known as the Wedge. The Rocky
                  Mountain Nature Association and the Trust for Public Land, in
                  partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Park
                  Service, have worked for 20 years to acquire these Wedge lots,
                  which are part of the Colorado River headwaters and are highly
                  visible from Trail Ridge Road, the main road that traverses Rocky
                  Mountain National Park. Currently, the Forest Service owns seven
                  of the Wedge lots but these parcels do not have national forest sta-
                  tus as the boundary of Arapaho National Forest has never been ad-
                  justed to include the lots within the Arapaho National Forest.
