Project Description: 

This project provides a loop destination at the west end of the Core trail until easements can be obtained to continue the Core trail further West.   A nature walk style trail including a boardwalk would provide an alternate activity for family members while others are utilizing the existing Skateboard & Bike Parks at Bear River Park.  

At approximately 0.4 miles (including approximately 0.05 miles of Boardwalk) in length and an average grade of approximately 3%, this trail provides an excellent loop with views of the Yampa river, Steamboat Ski Area & wetlands.

Project Specific Benefits:
  • Provides a destination at the West end of the Core trail that would eliminate the trail to nowhere feel.
  • Improves an already used set of trails and connects them with a board walk to complete the loop.
  • Saves cost by establishing the trail as an all-season gravel secondary trail that could be paved at a future date if desired.
