Gore Valley Trail through Dowd Junction to open April 15 — The Know

The Gore Valley Trail through Dowd Junction will be reopened for a new season by 5 p.m. Friday, April 16, weather permitting. Users are advised to use extreme caution during or after additional snowstorms due to snowplowing activity on Interstate 70.

In addition to sweeping, cleaning and other repairs, reopening the trail requires the installation of a fabric screen near the Mud Springs Gulch wildlife underpass. The screen hides trail users from migrating deer and elk and allows the trail to remain open during the spring migration season.

Regarding other pathways, the recreation trail from Sunburst Drive to East Vail is being plowed for reopening on April 14 or sooner; avalanche danger may be present near Aspen Lane. The section of recreation trail between Lionshead and Westhaven Drive will be plowed once the ski season is completed.

Following additional spring snowstorms, the pathways will be plowed back open after all other priorities have been serviced.
