Avon, CO—Town officials have
announced upcoming trail closures in the West Avon Preserve to protect wildlife
winter habitat. Closures will be in effect from December 15th through at least
April 15th and apply to all multi-use trails except Our Backyard and
Leading up to the posted closure period, the Town advises trail users to not
use the trails if they are muddy. With recent moisture and freeze thaw
cycles, Planning Director Matt Pielsticker reminds users that “riding on a mud
trail wrecks the trail. It leaves ruts, contributes to erosion, and creates
hard to fix trail surfaces.”
There will be physical closure barriers and signage installed at trail
entrances of closed trails. The PB&J and Our Backyard trails will remain
open through the winter. These trails are best accessed from the Beaver
Creek Point parking lot and O’Neal Spur Pocket Park, respectively.
For more information on the upcoming trail closures, please contact Matt
Pielsticker, Planning Director, at 970-748-4413 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
