During the development of GOCO’s new strategic plan, public and stakeholder input expressed Coloradans’ continued support for more trail connectivity. Meanwhile, the health and wellness of our state’s youth and families is a topic of concern as youth obesity rates continue to rise. Through this initiative, Coloradoans will have free access to safe, non-motorized trails connecting them to outdoor destinations and experiences in their own communities and beyond.
