North Cheyenne Cañon Park
Since 2015, RMFI has helped complete trail and restoration projects in North Cheyenne Cañon Park, a regional park managed by the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services Department (CSPRCS). Notable RMFI projects include new trail construction to access Mt. Muscoco and improvements to the Silver Cascade Trail, Mid-Columbine Trail, and Powell Connector Trail. These projects were made possible through partnership with the Friends of Cheyenne Cañon (FOCC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the stewardship of the Park.
RMFI is partnering with FOCC and CSPRCS to complete multiple restoration and trail improvement projects including social trail restoration and refinements to system trails within the Upper Mesa Project Area and improvements to Mount Cutler Trail and Mid-Columbine Trail. RMFI is also partnering with FOCC to complete a series of trainings to boost stewardship capacity among its members.
