East Ridge Trail completed

MEEKER | The Bureau of Land Management put the final touches on the 1.3-mile East Ridge Trail above Meeker Nov. 3.
The trail provides an important link between the seven-mile Meeker Trail System and four miles of two-track trail on BLM previously inaccessible to the public by trail.
“The completion of this trail significantly contributes to the network of public trails right outside Meeker,” said BLM White River Field Manager Kent Walter. “We have been working closely with the Town of Meeker and the Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District to develop a designated trail system.”
Many local volunteers, Colorado Mountain Club, Conservation Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Youth Corps helped build the trail.
