The City of Aspen Park’s Department is excited to announce a new project in collaboration with Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association (RFMBA) aimed at enhancing the recreational offerings for our community.
The proposed Marolt / Thomas Skill Trails has initiated a public engagement campaign to gather feedback and provide further information about this project. The city has organized a series of community engagement opportunities designed to inform, educate, and seek input from our valued residents.
The proposed location of this project lies in the Thomas parcel of the Marolt / Thomas Open Space. Nestled between Castle Creek Road and Marolt Place, this location remains separate from many Marolt Open Space activities such as the Community Garden or Aspen Paragliding. Please see the proposed trails rendering and ariel map below.
Survey: During the outreach phase of this project, we are conducting a survey to gather public perceptions regarding the proposed bike skill trails. This survey is available down below.
Site Visit: To help community members visualize the location and better understand how this trail would function, we will be hosting an on-site event featuring walking tours of the Marolt / Thomas area. This event will offer a hands-on opportunity to explore the potential trail route and its benefits. The site visit will be held at the proposed Marolt / Thomas location on October 19th at 4 p.m.
Information Session: Leading up to the November Open Space and Trails Board meeting, we will hold an informational session. This session will serve as a platform for project leaders to showcase detailed plans, maps, and visuals of the proposed bike skill trail. Community members are encouraged to attend this session, ask questions, and provide feedback. This information session will be held at 4 p.m. on November 16th.
