The Summit County Open Space and Trails Department, along with numerous project partners, are working to restore a more than 2 mile long stretch of the Swan River near Breckenridge. Approximately half of this distance is on land jointly owned by Summit County and the Town of Breckenridge. Additional information about this project, its history, and what is happening now is available atrestoretheswanriver.comand in the documents below.
With assistance from Belt Collins out of Boulder, CO and coordination with Park County and the Towns of Breckenridge, Blue River and Alma, we have conducted a feasibility study to determine if it would be possible to construct a Recpath between Breckenridge and Alma. If constructed, this approximately 17 miles of paved Recpath would allow users to connect into the existing trails and navigate a designated Recpath system between Vail Pass and the Town of Fairplay. This would also provide a safe commute option for residents of Summit and Park Counties to travel between towns separated by Hoosier Pass. Please see the below links for the document. A hard copy can be viewed at the Summit County Open Space & Trails Department office.
Thank you to everyone who contributed and provided feedback over the past few months!
