The Gunnison County Trails Commission advises and assists the Board of Commissioners and Planning Commission to protect, plan, develop, and manage trails in Gunnison County as a means of enabling alternative modes of transportation, minimizing disturbances to livestock movement and agricultural practices, providing necessary access to public lands and promoting the recreational economy of Gunnison County.

Other primary functions are to:
  • Develop a County trails system
  • Review development requests or land use changes that will impact trail access or use throughout the county
  • Work cooperatively with the municipalities in Gunnison County, the State of Colorado, and federal agencies in the planning, preservation, financing, construction, maintenance, and management of new trails, existing trails, and trail access
