Project Description: An attractive Southern terminus of the Yampa River Core Trail is a much needed amenity for tourist and residents of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. At present, the Core Trail and linking trails provide more than 35 miles of hard surface trail; many of those miles also include a parallel soft surface trail for mountain biking, jogging, and snowshoeing.  The Core Trail connects to over 18 miles of public single track trails on Emerald Mountain and a gated gravel road that extends to near the top of Emerald Mountain; these trails connect to BLM trails on the backside of Emerald Mountain.  It also links directly to the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation’s 25-mile network of trails, which provides linkage to Forest Service Trails and the Continental Divide Trail.  In the future, it will make up part of the 200-mile Yampa River Trail, extending from the Flattops Wilderness Area in Routt County to Dinosaur National Monument in Moffat County. continued below.....
