Wordle graphic with trails program text

​In 2020, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) convened a Task Force made up of 20 local, state and federal land managers from across the state. Their charge was to develop the 2021 version of Planning Trails with Wildlife in Mind, which updates the best practices and science for Colorado's land managers, trail advocates, and conservationists engaged in trail planning. This guide focuses extensively on collaborative approaches to problem solving to meet both conservation and recreation goals.
