Pitkin County Open Space and Trails is looking for input on how to make the Rio Grande Trail more user-friendly. The goal is to get more users on the trail by adding things like bathrooms and bike racks at strategic locations. 

The county wants to add and improve “nodes,” or trailside pull-outs, for resting between Aspen and Emma.

They’re conducting a survey to see what kinds of improvements, like water fountains, educational signs and shade structures, trail users want. 

Pitkin County also wants input on how to improve trailheads, if signs need to be replaced, or if they should add amenities like dog clean-up stations or map kiosks. 

The survey is available online through the end of the month.
