Trails & open space Coalition
Tosc Stands for Our Outdoors
We believe in protecting our trails, parks, and open spaces
which in turn protects our lifestyle for generations to come.
TOSC is proud to be a part of the 2020 give! Campaign
Give! makes it simple for everyone, young and old, to get involved in philanthropy. While giving is and should be its own reward, local businesses wanting to support Give! and our local nonprofits provide a selection of cool gifts at no cost to Give!, as a special and unique THANK YOU to you for your donation. The more money you donate, the more rewards you get. Young donors (age 13-36) who give $10 or more are eligible for their own unique rewards.
Right now when you make a donation, TOSC will receive a matching contribution! Double your impact by donating NOW. Together we can connect trails & preserve open space.
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.
