Roaring Fork River Trail Glenwood Springs, Colorado

In collaboration with the City of Glenwood Springs, 1.3 miles of trail along Three-Mile Creek and the Roaring Fork River was designed to benefit the community. A portion of the trail is located between the western bank of the Roaring Fork River and the historic Atkinson Canal.

Designing a Multi-Use Path with Minimal Environmental Impact

Our team worked closely with the City of Glenwood Springs Community Development and the River Commission to develop a plan for a 10-foot-wide concrete path with two-foot soft surface shoulders; a four-span pedestrian/bicycle bridge underpass at the Sunlight Bridge; trail amenities such as overlooks, picnic shelters, and beach access; and improvements to the trailheads. We designed the trail with minimal environmental and hydraulic impacts because of the sensitivity of the surrounding area.
