The
goal of the project is to extend the off-street path for bicyclists and pedestrians
in Boulder Canyon. The path will connect to the Chapman Drive trailhead and
Flagstaff Mountain Trails. Boulder County Transportation is working on this
project with help from the Colorado Department of Transportation and the City
of Boulder, and project funding is coming from all three entities.

A
feasibility report was completed in 2011. This report and the concept plans are
also available on the project website at
www.BoulderCanyonTrail.com.
