Once the final 12 miles of trail are completed, the 63-mile paved Eagle Valley Trail will connect the communities of Eagle County with neighboring counties. You will be able to travel from Summit County over Vail Pass to Glenwood Springs and on to Aspen without ever having to get on a highway!

Currently, the only missing sections of the Trail are in Eagle County.  It provides a safe way to commute, recreate and get outside. However, with the remaining sections incomplete, safety becomes an issue when trail traffic is directed to the road.

  • The Eagle County Commissioners have secured funds to cover $22 million.
  • Eagle County plans to seek grants and other support to fund approximately $2 million.
  • As a community we need to raise the additional $2.5 million.*

With your help we can complete the Eagle Valley Trail by 2024
