Colorado Statewide Trails Planning Meetings Set

As part of the “Colorado the Beautiful” initiative, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife state trails program is preparing a comprehensive 10-year strategic plan. To develop the plan CPW wants to hear from trail users at two public meetings.

These meetings will be held in an “open house” format with stations where trail users can comment on various aspects of the plan. The meetings will be held at the following locations: 6-8:30 p.m., July 21, at the Denver REI Store, 1416 Platte St.; and July 25, 6-8 p.m. at the Ridgway State Park visitors’ center, 28555 US-550, about 20 miles south of Montrose.

The plan includes motorized and non-motorized trails throughout the state. Every year the trails program provides $8-$9 million in grants statewide to government agencies and private groups for construction and maintenance of trails.

The latest draft of the plan to be discussed can be found at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife web site:

Comments may also be provided by e-mail: Public comments on the plan must be received by 5 p.m., July 26 to be considered in the preparation of its final adoption by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission.
