THE NORTH TSA PLAN APPROVED
After more than a year of public input and planning, and an in-depth public process, City Council has approved the North TSA plan, including 85 sustainable actions to improve and protect 7,700 acres of land north of Linden Avenue. The North Sky Trail was approved as a multi-use trail to be designed to minimize impacts and preserve natural resources. This new trail will connect with the Joder Ranch trail on the west side of U.S. 36 from Olde Stage Road to Lefthand Canyon.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has received funding and approval to build the trails starting this year, and they should be rideable by the fall of 2017.

MAGNOLIA TRAIL PROJECT
As part of a U.S. Forest Service plan, the Magnolia trail system, which is just south and west of Nederland, is in the planning stages. The 6,000-acre plan would bring 12 miles of new single- track and 36 miles of rehabilitation or realignment of existing trails. It would expand the already popular West and East Mag trail systems.
