Colorado State Trails Committee
Colorado State Trails Committee

The Committee was established with the passage of Colorado's "Recreational Trails System Act of 1971." The Committee's roles and responsibilities are defined in Colorado's Revised Statutes §33-11-105 and §33-11-106. The Committee serves as the principal advisory board to the Parks and Wildlife Commission on all matters related to trails in Colorado. In addition, the Committee fulfills Colorado's responsibility to convene a State Trails Advisory Committee for funding eligibility under the Federal Highways Administration's Recreational Trails Program.

The roles of the Recreational Trails Committee (RTC) are to:

  • Advise Colorado's Trails Program on strategic and policy issues.
  • Review trail grant procedures and funding programs.
  • Provide a liaison with trail user groups.
  • Help plan and participate in the Colorado Trails Symposium and other events.

​The nine Trails Committee members are volunteers, one from each of Colorado's Congressional Districts, one At-Large Representative and one GOCO Representative. They serve four-year terms and may be reappointed to a second, four-year term. Members represent a wide variety of trail interests, (motorized and non-motorized) with the goal of working cooperatively for trails and greenways throughout the state.
