Trails & Open Space Coalition

We work cooperatively with local and regional governments, community organizations, businesses, families and individuals who share the vision of an interconnected network of trails, greenways and open space. We advocate, educate, build connections with other groups, fund projects, and create and support volunteer projects.

Join the Coalition

With your support, the Trails and Open Space Coalition works to preserve open space, and create a network of parks, trails and bikeways in the Pikes Peak region. Please join us!

Our Latest Program

Ring the Peak

In December of 2016, the Trails and Open Space Coalition received a Great Outdoors Colorado Connect Initiative Trail Planning Grant for the Ring the Peak Trail Project. The $100,000 planning grant will allow TOSC and partners (Friends of the Peak and City of Colorado Springs Parks) to hire a project team and create a master plan for the roughly 8-mile “missing link” on the southwest side of Pikes Peak. This grant allows the Trail and Open Space Coalition to lead a great public process involving land owners, land managers, community leaders, residents and trail users. At the end of the process we will have a trail alignment plan that closes the southwest gap.
