Boulder County, in partnership with the City of Boulder and Town of Erie, is evaluating options for the creation of a new soft-surface regional trail connection along the RTD-owned rail corridor linking the City of Boulder and Erie.
This connection was identified in the county’s regional trails prioritization process in 2003 and is eligible for funding through the Countywide Sales Tax Ballot passed by voters in 2007. The Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan and Boulder County Transportation Master Plan identify this trail connection as an important link in the Boulder Valley and regional trails systems.
The first step in trail development is to conduct a master planning process to identify needs, opportunities, and constraints of constructing the regional trail. That process began in the summer of 2019 and is ongoing. More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
