The Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail Extension is now open

Boulder County Celebrates the Extension of the Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail on Thursday, October 14

Boulder County's Parks & Open Space Department, Transportation Department and the Board of County Commissioners are pleased to announce the extension of the Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on Thursday, October 14, at 3:00pm at the southwestern edge of W. Coal Creek Drive in Superior, approximately 0.8 miles from the intersection of W. Coal Creek Drive and McCaslin Blvd. For those interested, there will be a guided nature hike along the Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail immediately following the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Boulder County Parks and Open Space worked with the City of Boulder, Town of Superior, Boulder Area Trails Coalition, Boulder County Parks and Open Space Foundation, Boulder County Transportation, and Great Outdoors Colorado to complete the Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail portion of the Marshall-Superior-Coalton Trail system.

This new section added 1.5 miles of multi-use trail that extends from the City of Boulder's Cowdrey Draw Trail at the northwest to the Town of Superior's Mayhoffer-Singletree at the southeast. The trail was constructed with the assistance of the Boulder County Youth Corps.

This trail extension completes a 13-mile loop trail that includes the City of Boulder's Greenbelt Plateau, Community Ditch Trail and Cowdrey Draw trails that now connect to the Town of Superior and Boulder County trails. The project area includes the former route of the Morgul-Bismarck Loop of the Coors International Bicycle Classic from the 1980s.

This new section of trail also provides a highly anticipated link to the City of Boulder Marshall-Mesa trails, the Rock Creek Trail system and the Coal Creek Trail system. This trail is located within a unique portion of the City of Boulder and Boulder County's open space properties that include the largest natural grassland plant community in Boulder County.

For more information, please call 303-678-6200.

Good news on the new piece of the Dirty Bismarck opening today. Although technically county open space properties are only open sunrise to sunset, they know this would be inconsistent with the surrounding trail system. A public process is in motion to change the rule and allow access 24/7. In the meantime, Boulder County Parks and Open Space won't be issuing tickets. Thanks to the county for being proactive on this!!!
