Outside 285 Trail Master Plan

[ Client: Colorado Parks & Wildlife, Colorado Mountain Bike Association, U.S. Forest Service ]

Colorado’s Front Range’s population is projected to increase by 20% by 2030, and the pandemic-driven 2020 and 2021 visitation levels provided a valuable preview of what is to come on public lands accessed by US-285. The need to plan proactively to distribute visitors, improve and maintain trails, and protect wildlife habitat is paramount. Mimi is supporting ERO Resources as a planner and facilitator for Outside 285, a 1-year, regional trail planning process focused on identifying opportunities for trail improvements, wildlife habitat conservation and management solutions within public lands surrounding the US-285 corridor southwest of Denver.
