The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will celebrate the opening of several miles of non-motorized trails and a new trailhead in the Phil’s World Trail System at noon Saturday at the Cash Canyon Trailhead on County Road L.
To date, two new trailheads and eight miles of trails have been built. Working with partners, volunteers, and youth corps, the BLM plans to build about 12 more miles of non-motorized trails. Phil’s World Trail System is one of the BLM’s top 20 mountain biking trail systems in the U.S. and is part of the Cortez Special Recreation Management Area.
Following the one-hour event, join the BLM, Southwest Conservation Corps and volunteers with the Southwest Colorado Cycling Association for a ride or hike on the new Highline and Canal trails.
Recreation on BLM-managed lands in Colorado generated an estimated $653 million and supported about 5,077 jobs in fiscal year 2018.
