63-mile Glenwood-Vail bike path halfway built, unfunded

The planned regional trail system will be 63 miles long and will travel from Glenwood Canyon to Vail Pass with a connection to Red Cliff. Thirty-three miles are complete; 30 miles remain to be built. Four miles are to be constructed this year. The cost to complete the remaining sections is $20 million, and $500,000 is collected annually for the trails fund.
