Holy Cross Energy is performing overhead power line maintenance which requires them to create an access road. Trails remain open but many trails including ASC Connector and lower Saddleridge will be impacted. Please be safe and respect the Holy Cross Energy crew’s safety so trails can remain open. There may be temporary closures in place at any time. Read here for more info on this project.
Trails have been more important than ever during this pandemic. They offer an opportunity to get out of our homes, socialize, feel normal, and improve our physical and mental health. But we have a responsibility to recreate responsibly not for only ourselves, but the others around us. Please follow these guidelines when getting outside. We are all in this together and its on us as a community to come out of this pandemic even stronger!
Seasonal wildlife closures are in effect. These seasonal closures are in place to allow wildlife including elk and deer the ability to move to lower elevations, find food sources, and survive the harsh Colorado winter. For a full list of seasonal closures please visit our page here.
We are partnering with the Town of Minturn to build and open Phase 1 of the Minturn Bike Park in late summer/early fall 2020. The bike park will be a world class amenity for all ages, families, and abilities to enjoy. It will include green beginner trails and a kid friendly pump track to advanced dirt jumps and gravity flow trails with drops, rolls, and features. We are applying for grants and actively fundraising to bring this park to life. Thanks to our community of trail supporters we raised over $50,000 to date which will allow construction to begin in the summer of 2020!
After over 2,000 hours and over 300 volunteers, the Everkrisp Trail is officially complete! Didn’t get out on the new trail this past summer?

There are many loops to create from this new trail including linking Whiskey Creek and the EagleVail trail. Check out the trail on Trailforks here.
