Yes, the trail is not completed for the 3.5 miles between Cherry Creek State Park and Cottonwood, although about 2 miles are finished in short sections, requiring the use of Jordan Road..
There are various reasons given -
1. The possibly endangered Prebbles Jumping Field Mouse lives there, or;
2. The land owner near Arapahoe anad the bridge underpass won't give a right-of-way, or
3. Arapahoe County doesn't want to spend the $$ although lottery funds should be available.
Take your choice, I have heard all three.
Once it is finished, you will be able to go from Castlewood Canyon State Park through Franktown, Parker, CCSP, downtown and north to almost Brighton, about50 miles or more.
See you Saturday.
Anyone else want to join us?
