While Nov. 11 is officially recognized as Veterans Day, two Delta residents have a plan to honor veterans every day of the year through beautification of the Garnet Mesa Trail.
Jim Ball, a veteran of World War II, lives just above the trail that he's walked "hundreds" of times.
The Bureau of Land Management Grand Junction Field Office, Grand Mesa Jeep Club and Mesa County officially opened the Tabeguache Connector Trail on Sept. 16.
The trail opening was commemorated with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new trail sign on Highway 141 in Whitewater. Grand Mesa Jeep Club (GMJC) hosted a barbecue after the dedication.
The USFS and Western Slope Conservation Center are teaming up to host a trail work day on the Cliff Creek Trail on July 14. It will be a great opportunity to get your hands dirty, help maintain a popular local trail, and meet people from both organizations.
A portion of the Crag Crest National Recreation Trail will be temporarily closed until July 21. This closure will prohibit public access from the east trailhead at the Crag Crest Campground along the lower loop to the intersection at Butts Lake.
By a 3-2 vote, Delta City Council voted to pursue a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation to complete the first portion of a trail extension from Confluence Park.
In a special meeting July 26, councilmembers agreed to set aside matching funds of $100,000, which is about 20 percent of the total cost of developing the trail under the Highway 50 bridge in North Delta.
With community volunteers, a new hiking/biking trail will be built near the County Line cross-country ski area on Grand Mesa.
A trail build day is scheduled for what is expected to be a colorful day, Sept. 19. Volunteers should meet at the marked County Line trailhead, just off Highway 65 on Grand Mesa at 9 a.m.
