Gold Support Level
Gold Support Level see event details $1,000
Help Gunnison Trails work with our local land managers, maintain our trails, educate trail users and propose and build new trails. Additionally, the threatened Gunnison Sage-grouse is a huge issue and occupies much of our time. It turns out that all of our trails are in Gunnison Sage-grouse habitat. Of course, Gunnison Trails continues to hammer away at trying to connect Gunnison and Crested Butte with a backcountry singletrack, too.
Silver Support Level
Silver Support Level see event details $500
Gunnison Trails is currently creating a trails master plan for the Signal Peak area northeast of Gunnison with the assistance of a grant from Colorado Parks and Wildlife. With BLM approval, new trail construction could begin here in the near future. If we get this opportunity, Gunnison Trails is proposing to build much of this system by employing local high school and college students working through established youth corps organizations.
Bronze Level Support
Bronze Level Support see event details $250
New construction for 2015 will be to reroute Water Treatment and Fenceline trails. This will offer some new trail riding for the Growler in 2016. These new alignments will be classic Hartman Rocks trail. Thanks for supporting our efforts!
