MANAGEMENT ACTION SUMMARY
SOME HISTORY This open space is a 282-acre parcel located in the mid-Roaring Fork Valley, in Eagle County. Two land purchases, in 2013 and 2014, created the open space, involving a partnership of Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, Eagle County, Great Outdoors Colorado, the Town of Basalt, and the Mid-Valley Trails Committee.
The first management plan for Glassier Open Space was adopted in 2015. Since then, actions have included construction of bike/hike and equestrian/hike trails to access trails on the Crown, the leasing of agricultural areas, stabilization of an historic home on the property and the construction of an off-site trailhead parking area.
