Last week our friends at Cloud City Wheelers in Leadville let us borrow their mini-excavator for some late fall trail building out on the new North Sky trail. It’s fat bike season up in Leadville and CCW is out grooming the singletrack trails at Timberline. If you haven’t checked the system out before, it’s well worth it and feel free to show your appreciation with a donation.

I’ll be working out on North Sky as long as the weather holds and the ground isn’t frozen. 

The North Sky trail is still on track for a Spring 2024 opening. City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks announced that the Foothills trail will be closed soon for staging of the 2 steel bridges that will be installed on North Sky. Find more details about the closure and bridges on their project website.
