Zapata Downhill Project

We need your vote!

We have received the distinct honor of making the final selection of 12 projects being considered to be the recipient of an IMBA/Bell Built Grant which would enable a downhill trail system to be completed at the Zapata Falls Recreation Area. The trail system would be the first of its kind in the nation as there are currently no other downhill trail systems on public lands which are not ski resorts. We are partnering with the Steamboat Springs project for the Pumptrack category, the Bear River Bike Park. Please support these valuable Colorado bike trail projects!

The Zapata Falls Recreation Area gravity-assisted trails project is a region-wide effort spearheaded by the Bureau of Land Management. With trail development already in progress the Bell Built funding will allow the intensive development of gravity-specific features (jumps, drops, rock gardens) to add spice to this growing gravity system.
