The Colorado the Beautiful Grant Program funds projects through large trail construction grants and regional trails planning grants. It provides a unique opportunity that includes goals, objectives and criteria independent of the normal motorized and non-motorized Colorado Parks and Wildlife grants that run each fall. The program is a partnership between CPW and Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO).

Colorado the Beautiful Initiative was announced in 2016. Its vision is that within a generation, every Coloradan will live within 10 minutes of a park, trail, or vibrant green space. The Colorado the Beautiful Grant Program works towards that goal by increasing access to public lands for Coloradans and visitors alike.
