We need to raise $30,000 cash for this $250,000 project. This is the cash match requirement for the Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant. Please donate and support this project. Businesses can support the bike park by becoming a Business Partner or joining our 1% for Trails program.
The Minturn Bike Park is a partnership between the Town of Minturn and the VVMTA. The VVMTA built the Mini Mile in 2017 and identified this open parcel of land owned by Minturn which is specifically designated for use as a park for outdoor recreation. The Minturn Town Council passed a Resolution in July 2019, officially partnering with the VVMTA who will submit a GOCO grant application in the fall of 2019.
Who It’s For:
The Minturn Bike Park is for kids, families, and adults. The park will draw kids and beginners who want to begin, improve, and progress their bike riding abilities. There will be shade structures, water, restrooms, and picnic areas for families to gather. The park will also include advanced level dirt jumps and technical gravity trail features with rock drops, wood features, bridges and more! Finally, the first and only specific adaptive mountain bike trail in Eagle County will be built in the Minturn Bike Park.
See the draft layout below which is subject to change. The park will feature kid and beginner friendly pump track and green flow trails for those. It will also feature blue and black gravity flow trails and advanced dirt jumps for the more progressive riders. Additionally, the park may include a dual slalom course and the first adaptive mountain bike trail in Eagle County. FlowRide Concepts, a professional trail building company based out of the Front Range is leading the design and construction of the bike park.
We are partnering with the community to build this FREE to use amenity for all locals and visitors. Partners on board supporting the project already include Town of Minturn, Vail Rec District, Mountain Rec, Zehren & Associates, Cycle Effect, Eagle County Schools, and more.
Pending a successful GOCO grant in March 2020, construction would begin in April/May of 2020 and be completed in the fall of 2020. If we do not gain your support we will not be successful winning the grant which means the bike park will not be built in 2020.
