The Rocky Mountain Greenway will provide a regional trail corridor that links Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge to Rocky Mountain National park via Two Ponds and Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuges, and many other protected open space and park lands.


In March 2012, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper formalized the Rocky Mountain Greenway Project, a federal, state and local partnership to create a continuous trail/transportation connection between Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and Rocky Mountain National Park via Two Ponds and Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuges. In February of 2013, the Rocky Mountain Greenway also gained the support of U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Ray Lahood.

The Rocky Mountain Greenway will close critical gaps in the existing regional trail and local community trail networks in order to connect three refuges in the Denver Metro Area to Rocky Mountain National Park.

 

FLAP Grant to Tie the Rocky Mountain Greenway into Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge
The Refuge and its partners in Boulder, Broomfield, Arvada and Jefferson County received a $5 million Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) grant award to fund the design and construction of two highway crossings to connect the Rocky Mountain Greenway to where it ends in Broomfield Open Space to the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge's trail network via a bike/pedestrian bridge across Indiana Street and then to Boulder Open Space north of Highway 128 via an underpass.
