    Trails Talk Forum to Cover e-bike Study and Trails Development Handbook

    The Trails Talk forum, a community meeting hosted by Jeffco Open Space, will be held Wednesday, January 25, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Golden.

    Park visitors can learn about and discuss a broad range of trail-related topics at the Jeffco Open Space office, 700 Jefferson County Parkway, Ste. 100, Golden CO, 80401.

    Topics in store include initial findings from a recent test e-bike demo and study that took place at Crown Hill Park, the new Trails Development Handbook, and the latest trail developments including updates on the Peaks to Plains Trail.

    Trails Talk will begin as an open house, with attendees free to visit table stations and speak to staff with trail and project expertise. At 6:15 p.m., Tom Hoby, Director of Open Space & Parks, as well as other staff will present and answer questions. After the presentations, the table stations will reopen for discussion with staff.

    Each year, Jeffco Open Space hosts Trails Talk to promote discussion and involvement related to the avenues visitors share on open space lands. With volunteer support, Jeffco Open Space promotes healthy experiences in nature over more than 230 miles of trails.
