2018 Colorado the Beautiful Trails Grant Program

The Colorado the Beautiful Grant Program funds projects through large trail construction grants and regional trails planning grants. In 2016 Governor Hickenlooper announced the Colorado the Beautiful Initiative. Its vision is that within a generation, every Coloradan will live within 10 minutes of a park, trail, or vibrant green space. This new grant program works towards that goal by increasing access to public lands for Coloradans and visitors alike.
