PRESS RELEASE January 6, 2014

2014 is the 25th Anniversary of the Colorado Scenic and Historic Byways program which includes 25 Official Scenic Byways.

The celebration will culminate in a media and celebration event in Blackhawk, June 18 & 19, 2014.

The Santa Fe Trail Scenic and Historic Byway- Mountain Branch has worked hard to identify and protect the natural resources of our area, and have galvanized relationships with several state and federal agencies including Byway Boards, Visitor Centers, Public Land Partners (NPS, BLM, USDA Forest Service), and officials at city, county, and state levels.

Completed projects include brochures for all of our Colorado Welcome Centers throughout the state, and interpretation at three locations on Comanche National Grasslands, Boggsville, Amache, El Moro rest area, and our two Colorado Welcome Centers. Projects underway include a children’s activity book, three new brochures, and interpretative signs for Big Timbers Museum, Fort Lyon and La Junta Railway Depot Park. Projects to begin in 2014 include a scenic viewing telescope for each end of the byway, bike racks for 8 Bike the Byway locations, Byway broadcast signs for the I-25 corridor, and interpretive signs for the Gateway on the East end of the Byway, Trinidad’s new transit station and the Purgatoire trail to Trinidad Lake State Park and the newly opened trail at Bent’s New Fort and a tour booklet with guided tour planning for four Byway cities.

Help us fulfill our Byway mission by becoming a partner that can promote both your local Byway and the 25th Anniversary of the Colorado Scenic Byway program. The Byway invites you to attend our annual meeting on January 9, 2014, 11:30AM at Mt. Carmel Health and Wellness Center located at 911 Robinson Ave, Trinidad, Colorado.
