Alas, there might be a light at the end of the tunnel for turning this historical route into a legal singletrak trail. This will not be a road, this will not be a ATV route and it will not be big bike friendly (for now). There were people in the past, who have tried relentlessly with no movement forward but currently, we need to once again pursue this endeavor. All available resources need to be apart of this movement, old and new. I recently learned from the Headwaters Trails Alliance that the Grand Mountain Bike Alliance and the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance are seeking to build a multiple mile mountain bike/hiking trail up and over from yankee doodle lake to Winter Park via the pass. There is no reason why we as paying motorized users should not be able to snag a piece of that pie. I am not talking about being able to use their entire proposed route, but I am talking about using less than a miles worth of the proposed route which I will be working directly with HTA, GMBA, GCMC, the USFS (on the grand county side) and COHVCO to obtain. What is needed, are updates from the other side of the divide. The BMBA side. If you have any information or are willing to work together and meet up to discuss game plans please send me a PM. A road will not work. But a singletrak off the boulder wagon route, an already established legal motorized trail west of the needles eye tunnel, could easily link the singletrak from one route to the other. To say this would be a mega win for motorized use is an understatement. From what was mentioned, the outlook is 5yrs which seems like a lot of time but that is really a short time when dealing with the government for creating a proposed motorized trail. The new singletrak being built up on Sherman Creek was a 4yr ordeal as an example. Updates will be posted here, please post up your thoughts and ideas, let's get this.
