GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — The Mesa County Health Department is seeking public feedback as they develop a new masterplan for the Gunnison Bluffs and Old Spanish Trail areas.

Public health will be hosting two pop-up events to gather direct input from community members and users of the trail system. The pop up dates are as follows:

  • Thursday, June 1 from 5-6:30 p.m. at the North Trailhead
  • Saturday, June 3 from 8-10 a.m. at the Coffman Road Trailhead

People will be passing out surveys on the trail system at the two events. The survey is also available online here.

The Gunnison Bluffs and Old Spanish Trail areas are south of the Mesa County Landfill. The overall goals for the project include rerouting steep and unsustainable trail sections, adding easier trail experiences and more loop options, adding better signage, and doing maintenance on existing trails.

Mesa County Public Health wants to create more trail-based recreation opportunities in our area. We want to make our trails accessible to everyone, and encourage local residents to use them. Outdoor recreation improves physical and mental health, and contributes to the overall well-being of our community.
