RAT Trail System
The RAT system is currently a work in progress, continually evolving with ongoing construction of new trail. In the spring of 2013, after 8 years of administrative review by BLM and constant advocacy from COPMOBA/RAT, BLM issued its final Environmental Analysis and Travel Management Plan for the RAT trail network. Construction began almost immediately and, to date, volunteers and paid professionals have constructed over 9 miles of rockin’ new single track. Having received a large trail grant from Colorado Parks & Wildlife in March 2015, RAT has continued construction of new trail through October 2015 and will not stop work for the season until mid Novebember. By then, the system will include another 8 miles of sweet, sustainable single track. The newest trail opened to the public on October 26, 2015.

Ridgway State Park Trail System
In August 2013, Ridgway State Park, in conjunction with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, issued a final Environmental Analysis for that part of the trail system planned for construction on Parks land. BLM and Ridgway State Parks together have approved construction of over 20 miles of new single track trail.
