New Red Mountain trail opening today

A grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting at noon today will mark the official opening of the new Grandstaff Trail on Red Mountain in Glenwood Springs.

Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association representatives, city officials and others will be on hand for the event marking completion of a key part of the city’s broader soft trails master plan.

The ceremony will take place by the first overlook bench on the dirt road about a quarter of the way up Red Mountain.

Parking at the Jeanne Golay Trailhead is limited. Attendees are asked to hike or ride bikes from the Glenwood Community Center or elsewhere to the main trailhead. A free shuttle will take people to the site, originating from the parking lot west of City Hall on Eighth Street at 11:30 a.m.
