Ta Da!!! It’s been a long time coming, but with your help we may soon have an amazing new trail extending more than 9 miles between Boulder and Erie!
BATCO identified this trail alignment waaaay back in 1996 and we have been carrying it as one of our “Top 10 Trail Projects” ever since. It would utilize the former Union Pacific Railroad bed and would connect several favorite trails such as Walden/Sawhill Ponds, the East Boulder Trail at Gunbarrel (which in turn may someday be part of the Trail Around Boulder), and a network of trails in the Town of Erie. Boulder County and several partner agencies have been working diligently on this project since 2003.
NOW is the time for all non-motorized trail advocates to support this exciting opportunity! Please open the following link and familiarize yourself with the project: https://www.bouldercounty.org/transportation/plans-and-projects/union-pacific-trail/. Write the Regional Trails Planner Tonya Luebbert at email@example.com by August 31. There are also a few opportunities to join a virtual townhall on Aug 26 and 27.
That’s less than two weeks to get your voice heard! GO!
