We won!! GOCO awards $100K grant for Ring the Peak
This is a huge step forward for Ring the Peak. Now we need your help!
The Trails and Open Space Coalition has received a $100,000 Great Outdoors Colorado Connect Initiative Trail Planning Grant for the Ring the Peak Trail Project, the 60+-mile ring of trails circling Pikes Peak. The 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 gap on the southwest side of Pikes Peak, with an inclusive public process involving land owners, land managers, community leaders, residents and trail users.

We need your help! 

Every Great Outdoors Colorado grant requires matching funds of at least 25% from the community to complete the project. Please donate now and help us raise the rest of the money needed for the planning phase of Ring the Peak.

Special offer: December 14 – 20.
The first ten people to donate $200 or more to the Trails and Open Space Coalition through the IndyGive campaign in the next week (December 14 – 20 only) will receive a coupon good for a half-day rafting adventure from Echo Canyon River Expeditions.

  • This is not a drawing; it is a premium you will receive if you are one of the first ten to donate at the $200 level between December 14 and December 20.
