Colorado State Trails Committee
Colorado State Trails Committee

​​​​​​​​​​​The committee is an advisory board that is a requirement for the federal funds the Trails Program receives. This committee makes decisions on trails-related issues statewide as well as recommends the funding for annual trail grant awards. The State Trails Committee works in conjunction with the Parks and Wildlife Commission​.​

​​​​​​​​The roles of the State Trails Committee (STC) are to:

  • Advise Colorado State Parks' State 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.

Please send all public comments and messages to trails@state.co.us. All comments will be provided to the State Trails Committee member(s).
