The project connects the 89-mile Nicolet State Trail in Wisconsin to the 107-mile State Line Trail in Michigan. Trails are open to snowmobiling, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, all-terrain vehicles, and off-highway motorcycles.
This project required an easement across private property to access the San Juan National Forest. Labor was provided by the Southwest Conservation Corps, Southwest Colorado Cycling Association, and Mesa Verde Backcountry Horsemen, with additional funding from the National Forest Foundation.
Construction involved professional trail contractors, youth service crews, and community volunteer groups. The three-mile trail is a segment of the 20-mile Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Trail that will circumnavigate the community of Gerton.
