Project Sky Steps: Creating a Town to Sky Connect

March 27, 2017

Project to connect Nature Trail steps from Durango to Fort Lewis College Skyhawks campus

Trails 2000 is pleased to announce the upcoming project to create a town to sky stairway connect in Durango. Project Sky Steps will connect the town of Durango to the Fort Lewis College campus, home of the Skyhawks, by extending the Nature Trail steps. Once complete, the connect will include over 500 steps and gain over 250 feet in elevation, providing a wonderful walking route, commute to the college, and training stairway for runners and those looking for a workout.

Trails 2000 worked with the City of Durango and Fort Lewis College to organize the project. Several local organizations—including Russell Planning and Engineering, CrossFit Durango and CrossFit Catacombs—will volunteer with Trails 2000 to sponsor trailwork days. Work kicked off in April, and continues with various work days scheduled throughout April and May; the public is invited and encouraged to come out to volunteer at work days!
