Final leg of Fraser to Granby Trail almost complete
May 10, 2012
Work to complete the final leg of the Fraser to Granby Trail is in full force, thanks to a $100,000 Sprout Fund grant via the Grand foundation. Workers began trail improvements where the trail had left the parking lot at Ten Mile Drive near SilverCreek. Final improvements include a short turnpike and a new bridge over Ten Mile Creek, for which Grand County had donated beams, according to Maura McKnight, Headwaters Trails Alliance executive director. The trail will continue south of Flying Hills Rodeo grounds with cattle gates on either side and interpretive signage about the roping club and rodeo heritage, McKnight said, then continue to the light at Thompson Road, where it will pick up at the outskirts of Grand Elk subdivision. The trail will start/end at Kaibab Park foot bridge in Granby, where a town trail will pick it up, and the Fraser Sports Complex in Fraser on the other end. The trail is anticipated to be completed by mid-summer.
