Help complete a vast network of sustainable trails in Breckenridge.
Description

STEWARDSHIP SITE

 

The Town of Breckenridge and Summit County jointly own much of the Golden Horseshoe area, which contains over 2000 acres of Town and County managed open space. The area has an extensive existing trail network that crosses through Town and County open space and sections of the White River National Forest. Some of these routes were constructed by miners during the area's historic mining era.

VOLUNTEER PROJECT - WHAT & WHY

 

Be part of unique effort to help reopen an historic ditch for non-motorized recreational use. The Galena Ditch, originally constructed over 100 years ago to convey water to area mines, will be reopened to accommodate hikers and mountain bikers traveling between the popular Horseshoe Dredge Trailhead and the Colorado Trail. Be a part of history and help improve the trails in the Golden Horseshoe area.
