Large Grant Given to Steamboat Springs (Bike) Trails Alliance

by Sage Local on May 3, 2013

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.
