For years, RFMBA has been seeking a ‘holy grail’ trail alignment that will connect riders from the White River National Forest lands of the Hunter Creek Valley down to the City of Aspen and the Rio Grande Trail. Most riders currently finish their rides in the area by descending over a mile and 400 vertical feet on paved roads. We advocated for the acquisition of the Lindsay Parcel, and urged the City of Aspen to strongly consider implementation of the Portal trail alignment during the management planning process.
