Description

The Colorado Front Range Trail

The Colorado Front Range Trail will link existing trails systems with new trail corridors to create a pathway between Colorado’s burgeoning population centers

slide3

Initiation

How this concept began

  • Colorado State Parks Board discussed the idea of a border to border trail and directed staff to initiate a planning process
  • Staff met with local community stakeholders to discuss this concept and to identify potential corridor routes
  • Planning team toured the proposed corridor in 2001
  • Support for the Trail was overwhelming

Process

Colorado Front Range Trail Process

slide5

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Vision

To link the Colorado front range’s diverse communities and scenic landscapes with a multi-use trail from

New Mexico to Wyoming

slide6

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Principles

During the planning process two guiding

principles emerged:

  • First Principle
  • All trail routes comprising the Colorado Front Range Trail must be determined and approved by the local jurisdictions through which they pass. All acquisition and trail development decisions will be determined by the local jurisdictions’ land use decision processes.

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Principles

During the planning process two guiding

principles emerged:

Second Principle:

The Colorado Front Range Trail should be funded through a variety of long-term funding sources that build upon, rather than take away from current trail funding sources. Additional sources that can be dedicated to the trail’s completion should be pursued.

slide8

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Goals

  • Form a spine trail corridor along Colorado’s front range that links communities, points of interest, and public lands
  • Create a safe, fun, attractive, continuous, interesting, diverse, and educational trail
  • Utilize existing and approved
  • proposed trails as the basis for
  • the corridor
slide9

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Goals

  • Create a fairly direct north - south route
  • Link to other trails, especially major east - west trails, along the corridor
  • Have a separated trail,

away from highways

and roads, when possible

slide10

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Goals

  • Incorporate cultural, historical and environmental themes which enhance educational opportunities
  • Identify and protect sensitive natural, cultural and scenic resources when planning and constructing the trail
slide11

Vision, Principles, and Goals

Goals

  • Create a trail corridor that enhances eco-heritage tourism along the front range
  • Incorporate alternatives and loops, so the trail can be used for a diverse range of trail uses
  • Involve youth from the diverse

mixture of corridor communities

in trail construction through

local youth corps
