Strausenback Trail, From Ruin to Rise

November 11, 2010

Watch the captivating story of the reconstruction of Strausenback Trail. Located in Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs, Strausenback was once a gullied, eroding mess of a trail. Used by tens of thousands of hikers and runners each year, and 15,000 equestrians, it was loved to the point of ruin. But now, after 1.5 years of trail and restoration work by the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, and the construction of over 50 huge rock risers, Strausenback is back. Watch the new RMFI short video NOW!
