About 50 people, including Commissioner Terry Hart, showed up at the final public meeting on Monday, December 18, to discuss the Greenhorn Valley Trails Master Plan. All input from this and prior meetings plus the surveys will be combined into a final master plan on track to be completed by the end of January.

After a short introduction by Jim Montalbano, Jeff Webb of Altitude Landscape Consultants and his colleague, Cathleen Corlett of Corlett Landscape Architecture gave an interesting and informative PowerPoint presentation.

The planned trails would ultimately connect the exit at I-25, run west towards Rye, south to Graneros Gorge, and north to Craver Middle School. Updating the path around Lake Beckwith would be one of the first items to be completed. The plan calls for it to be a concrete path and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant, so people with wheelchairs and strollers can enjoy the entire path. Some other paths, including one going through the old west course of the golf course, would also be ADA compliant. A few trails would be left more rugged for more challenging hikes or mountain bike riding.
