The Open Space and Trails board met Thursday to discuss proposed trail alignments through the Crystal Valley.
Elizabeth Stewart-Severy has been following the issue and discussed progress and next steps with producer Christin Kay.

They’ve released possible routes for Pitkin County’s section, which runs to the top of McClure Pass. Elizabeth Stewart-Severy took a tour of the area, exploring both the history and the future of the corridor.
