Jeffco Open Space is coordinating the creation of the Jeffco Trails Plan, the first countywide trails plan for Jefferson County. The intent of the plan is to create a comprehensive trail system that unites the people, places, and possibilities of Jefferson County.
The Jeffco Trails Plan is a collaborative effort among the county, local governments, and non-profit partners. A Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Planning Grant utilizing Colorado Lottery funds is helping to finance the project. The planning process kicked off in January 2019 and the Plan will be developed over a one-year period with anticipated completion in February 2020. The Plan will assess trail and greenway needs throughout the county and establish priority areas and projects. Implementation of the priority projects will help to improve safety for trail visitors, increase and enhance healthy trail-related recreation opportunities, and allow more people to begin their outdoor experience from their homes. The final plan will serve as a guide for constructing trail improvements over time.
