After 25 years of delays, multiple public processes over the years and substantial studying of feasibility, the trail connection between Eldorado Canyon State Park and Walker Ranch has been put on hold yet again while the government works on solving unrelated problems caused by automobiles.
(submitted to POSAC on Jan 22, 2019) The three-agency working group under the leadership of Boulder County staff recommended a multi-use, regional trail to connect Eldorado Canyon State Park to Walker Ranch — the Eldo-to-Walker trail.
On Nov. 27, 2018, a three-agency working group recommended a new, multi-use, regional trail be built to connect Eldorado Canyon State Park to Walker Ranch — the Eldo-to-Walker trail.
YES! The three agency group that has been studying the Eldo-to-Walker trail concept concluded in their feasibility study that the north route is their preferred alignment.
At the last meeting of Boulder Open Space Board of Trustees, one of the Trustees, Kevin Bracy Knight, presented a summary of the City’s public outreach survey about what the public would like to see in a potential Eldo to Walker Connection.
BMA has been advocating for a multi-use trail from Eldorado Springs to Walker Ranch for almost two decades, and we are grateful that the City, County, and State have teamed up to study possible trail alignments in terms of feasibility, sustainability, habitat and wildlife concerns, and economic responsibility.
