West Avon Preserve: A Recreational Gem

by Bergen Tjossem

Outdoor recreation opportunities and public access to open space are keys to our quality of life in the Eagle River Valley. Our hiking, biking and dog walking trails are not only important to our Rocky Mountain experience, they also serve as a driving force for our local economy, bringing outdoor tourists, sports enthusiasts and top-notch athletes from around the world to play alongside the locals, right here in our own backyard.  Creating world-class trail systems conjures up that old Kevin Costner movie line… “Build it, and they will come.”

Your Eagle Valley Land Trust is proud to be working with local partners to do just that… creating and building new public trails at the 478-acre West Avon Preserve for the enjoyment of our citizens and guests.

At the West Avon Preserve, there will be something for everyone.  From family-friendly easy loops and beginner trails, to moderate recreation trails and expert downhill trails, there will be a fun experience for all.  Trail users can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, dog walking and even horseback riding on the property.  And, due to the conservation easement, the West Avon Preserve will always be permanently protected open space, saved forever to provide outdoor recreation opportunities and open spaces for our entire community. More information about the new trails can be found here! Get out and enjoy them today!
