Palisade Plunge Trail Scheduled to Open Next Summer

When complete, the Palisade Plunge will connect the top of the Grand Mesa (10,700′) to the Town of Palisade, CO, (4,700′) via 32 miles of superb quality back-country singletrack with 6,000’ of vertical relief.  COPMOBA Board President, Scott Winans, states “Phase I construction of the Palisade Plunge project began in July of this year.  Our trail is being forged through remote, rough, and beautiful country – a slow and painstaking process to create the physical trail that has taken so much time, effort, and partnership to plan and execute over the past many years.  When viewed in terms of typical trail projects, the Plunge has happened at light speed.  This is due to the tremendous community support for the idea and commitments made by all partners in the process.

Nearly half of the Phase I trail mileage is now complete, including some of the toughest construction areas on the route, and work continues with three construction crews active on the ground.  When complete in Spring-Summer next year, Phase I work will provide ~16 mi of trail along the stunning west flank of the Grand Mesa.  You’ll find some high-speed flow, back-country feel, stunning views of our country, and a ride you will not forget.”
