Planning Trails document cover

Planning Trails with Wildlife in Mind - Public Comment

Trails in Colorado can connect people with nature and support a high quality of life for all; proper trail management, planning, and design can minimize impacts and serve as a tool to support resilient landscapes, wildlife, and biodiversity.

Written primarily for land managers and organizations seeking grant funding for trails, the 2021 version of Planning Trails with Wildlife in Mind provides an update to the 1998 version to better align with our current knowledge about how to plan trails that incorporate strategies to minimize impacts to wildlife.

The document has been developed over the past year as a cooperative effort between a land managerTask Force, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and a stakeholder advisory group.

Please review the document and provide public comment by Sunday, April 18, 2021

Thank you!
