On Thursday, August 4, staff from Rocky Mountain National Park and the United States Forest Service joined by Grand Lake Mayor Judy Burke, dedicated a new one mile section of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Bowen Connector Trail was developed to provide a better experience for CDT travelers and park visitors by rerouting this section of the CDT away from a motorized route that was several miles long. This section of trail creates a connection between the Onahu Trailhead in the park and Bowen Gulch in the Arapaho National Forest. The continuation of the trail on the forest is already in place.
A partnership with the US Forest Service provided critical funding for the trail planning process. The
Volunteers assisted the park trail crew in building the trail.It was a major focus of a recent National Public Lands Day project.
