With well over 2 million visitors each year to Jeffco Open Space, taking care of existing parks and trails is our top priority. In order to do this job effectively and efficiently, Jeffco Open Space implemented an annual trails assessment. This snapshot in time will help to develop work plans and priorities for trail maintenance, identify opportunities for volunteer stewardship projects by groups or as a special event, and communicate to visitors where maintenance will be occurring. The table below shows the trail assessments by park, any related closures, as well as volunteer opportunities associated with projects.
For more information on the annual trails assessment read the April 2015 issue of Outdoor Insights.
