Pitkin County Commissioners voted 3-2 to approve the Carbondale to Crested Butte Trail Plan on Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018. Planning for the first phase of the trail, between Redstone and the top of McClure Pass, is expected to begin early in 2019 with the start of a federal NEPA review of trail sections that are proposed on the White River National Forest. In addition, the Colorado Department of Transportation will review trail segments proposed within the Hwy. 133 right of way.
Details about the process to come will be posted here as they become available.
The final version of the adopted trail plan, including Appendix A - the plan for the Gunnison County portion of the trail - is posted below. Also below are the public comments that informed the final plan and reports from the engineering and environmental studies that were conducted as part of the planning process. All of the appendices to the adopted plan can be found HERE.
