There's certainly no shortage of good scenery or means to exercise in the Grand Valley, and starting tomorrow, an additional 2.8 miles will be open on the Colorado Riverfront Trail.
The section of the trail that will eventually run from Grand Junction to Fruita is being built in three phases; the first phase is now complete.
According to Mesa County officials, the newest section of the trail extends west from Redlands Parkway and follows the winding path of the river.
You're invited to check out the first phase on Thursday at 10:00 a.m.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the Blue Heron Boat Ramp, located off the Redlands Parkway.
The trail will be open at 10:30 a.m. if you want to take a stroll or ride your bike along the new addition.
You also have a chance to help name the new section of the trail. The Riverfront Commission wants to hear what you think the Grand Junction-to-Fruita connection should be called.
You can vote for your favorite option.
County officials request that you carpool to avoid overloading the boat ramp parking lot.
If the lot is full, there's limited additional parking at the Junior Service League park to the east.
