17 volunteers built 3/4 miles of amazing trail along the rim of the Grand Mesa through Black Timber, Aspen Stands, Flower Filled Meadows with views of Delta County Valley, West Elk Mountains and San Juan Mountains.
The Palisade Rim Trail is now open for bikers and hikers! This weekend more than two dozen trail builders showed up to work on several remaining sections of the singletrack. Thanks to great volunteer turnout and perfect soil condition the work was completed shortly after the lunch break. There is still some work to be done, but the new trail is now ready for recreational traffic.
Over the course of the weekend the volunteer trail builders together with BLM officers made modest but steady progress building highly technical single track near the town of Palisade. The trail promises to be a new signature ride with spectacular views, challenging climbs and exciting technical moves.
