$5.8 Million Approved For Colorado Trail Projects

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission has approved $5.8 million in grants for trail projects over the next two years.

The projects include a U.S. Forest Service effort to complete trail reroutes and upgrades called for by the Rampart Recreation Area’s 2005 travel management plan, a proposal by the Western Slope ATV Association for trail maintenance and improvements on the Grand Mesa, and a workshop to educate trail users about stewardship issues and working with land managers.

Off-highway vehicle registrations and permits fund Colorado’s off-highway vehicle trails program. More than 160,000 off-highway vehicles were registered or permitted for use in Colorado during the 2010-2011 season.
