In March 2023, Colorado Parks and Wildlife recently funded a number of non-motorized trail projects in the Outside 285 study area. Outside 285 partners that received the funding include South Park Ranger District, Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative (MRHI), and Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA). The South Park Ranger District will use funds to hire and lead a 3-person, seasonal, non-motorized trail crew to perform routine and backlogged maintenance on the 271 miles of system trails within the District in the Pike National Forest. MRHI seeks to boost organizational volunteer capacity and will use the funding to hire a Volunteer Coordinator, recruit more volunteers, expand volunteer programming and training, and accomplish on-the-ground trail and restoration work. COMBA received funding for its professional trail maintenance crew that will work for 5-months (May-Oct) repairing public single track trails in the Clear Creek and South Platte Ranger Districts. Lastly, the BLM Royal Gorge Field Office and Rocky Mtn. Field Institute (RMFI) received funding in Spring 2021 for a Guffey Gorge trail project. There were delays in getting things rolling, however, construction is now underway on trail reroutes, widening of a trail section, hardening other sections with timber steps, and installing/replacing bridges and fences.
