Bike Town USA here we come! Steamboat Springs just awarded The Steamboat Springs Trails Alliance’s plan to transform the city into a world-class biking and hiking destination. 90% of the local Lodging Tax, which will generate an estimated $600,000 – $800,000 of tax revanue for the next decade, is now officially dedicated to helping improve the bike trails in Steamboat.
“This potential revenue source is a game changer for the community,” Trails Alliance representative Grant Fenton said after the committee announced the recommendation. “It will open up a lot of opportunities to leverage this revenue stream to make the entire community a world-class cycling destination.”
The group outlined 46 trail projects that span from the construction of a signature 20-mile, multiuse Walton Rim Trail to extending the Yampa River Core Trail.
