Mountain bike trails are officially open for business in Trinidad, Colorado, a town in the southern part of the state that is investing heavily in outdoor recreation. The trails opened in Fishers Peak, a new state park which itself opened two years ago.

Digging began in January, led by Colorado-based company Singletrack Trails. They have been funded by $3 million in economic stimulus funds appropriated by the Colorado General Assembly and signed by Governor Jared Polis.

The trails include a mix of hike-only, multi-use, and bike-only downhill trails.
