Weekly Trail Information Posts

Saturday Trail Posts

With all the big Trailsnet news coming out including the international trails information blog-post and the big surprise announcement coming out on March 14, it’s about time that we got a little more organized. So starting today, we’re going to try making at least one post per week on Saturday mornings. What do you think, are Saturdays mornings best, or should we publish these posts sometime on Fridays to help trail users prepare for the weekends? Our biggest readerships are, in the following order: Sundays, then Saturdays, then (surprise) Mondays, then Fridays. Readership falls off pretty steeply on Tuesdays through Thursdays.

Colorado Front Range Trail

Front Range Trail

Colorado Front Range Trail from Wyoming to New Mexico

Most Colorado citizens are unaware that one of America’s premier trails is being proposed to run along the most densely populated portions of the state including Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver, Boulder, Longmont, Loveland and Fort Collins. The Colorado Front Range Trail would run all the way from the New Mexico border to the Wyoming border and would end up being 876 miles long. In a recent article from the Boulder Daily Camera, it was noted that not only does Governor John Hickenlooper support the trail, but “wants to see a bike trail from the Wyoming state line to New Mexico

completed waiting the next five years.” Now that is both ambitious and awesome!!

Colorado: The Trail State

Wouldn’t it be great if Colorado changed it’s state moniker from The Centennial State to The Trail State? That would more accurately reflect Colorado’s position as one of the leading states for bicycling, hiking and outdoor recreation in general. In addition to the upcoming Colorado Front Range Trail, Colorado is also home to some other incredible long distance trails including the Great Plains Trail, the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail.

Thank Governor Hickenlooper for Supporting Long Distance Trails

This is the second in a (short) series of blog posts encouraging trail fans to contact their representatives who support trails and cycleways.  I encourage you to Contact Governor John Hickenlooper and thank him for his support of the Colorado Front Range Trail and/or to encourage any and all elected representatives who support trail building and funding. So, once again, I will share the recent message I sent to Governor Hickenlooper about his support for Colorado trails:

Dear Governor Hickenlooper,

I recently read, in the Boulder Daily Camera, that you would like to see a bike trail from the Wyoming state line to New Mexico. Thank you for supporting this important issue. I am a huge fan of the Colorado Front Range Trail. I am glad to hear that it is still alive and well. I am on the Board of Directors for the Great Plains Trail Alliance as well as a supporter of both the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. I would love to see Colorado become known as The Trail State. I appreciate your support of Colorado trails and especially bike trails. They are extremely valuable for health, safety, recreation, the environment and transportation. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help support the Colorado Front Range Trail either as a private citizen or through the trail advocacy website Trailsnet.com.
