East Plum Creek Trail southern extension now open

Posted

The southern extension of the most traveled trail in Castle Rock officially opened to the public on Sept. 6.

The East Plum Creek Trail connects neighborhoods through the community, traveling six miles along the scenic creek from Castle View High School to South Perry Street. The new southern extension adds two miles from South Perry Street to Crystal Valley Parkway.

Completion of the entire East Plum Creek Trail corridor was included as a town priority in the council-approved 2015 parks and recreation master plan. A $1 million Connect Initiative Grant from Great Outdoors Colorado helped to provide 50 percent of the funding for construction.

Great Outdoors Colorado invests a portion of Colorado Lottery proceeds to help preserve and enhance the state's parks, trails, wildlife, rivers and open spaces. GOCO's independent board awards competitive grants to local governments and land trusts, and makes investments through Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Created when voters approved a Constitutional Amendment in 1992, GOCO has funded more than 4,700 projects in urban and rural areas in all 64 counties without any tax dollar support. Visit GOCO.org for more information.
