This Monument Trail project was funded by a Walton Family Foundation Home Region grant and included the rehabilitation of the Fossil Flats Mountain Biking Trail and the creation of 12 new trails that opened in May 2021. The newest amenities include the Devil’s Racetrack Trailhead, a parking area, restrooms, and changing stalls. Additionally, there will be seven new hike-in/bike-in backcountry-style campsites, nestled near Lee Creek and accessible from the new parking area.
