City of Aspen’s Proposed Marolt / Thomas Skill Trail Sparks Community Engagement and Input 


ASPEN, CO – The City of Aspen Park’s Department, in collaboration with the Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association, is excited to announce a new project aimed at enhancing the recreational offerings for our community. The proposed Marolt / Thomas Skill Trail would be designed to offer mountain bike features for an exciting ride and building skills.  The Parks Department has initiated a public engagement campaign to gather feedback and provide further information about this project. The city has organized a series of community engagement opportunities designed to inform, educate, and seek input from our valued residents: 

Survey: During the outreach phase of this project, we are conducting a survey to gather public perceptions regarding the proposed bike skill trail. This survey is available online at to provide convenient access for participation. 

Site Visit: To help community members visualize the location and better understand how this trail would function, we will be hosting an on-site event featuring walking tours of the Marolt / Thomas area. This event will offer a hands-on opportunity to explore the potential trail route, its features, and how it fits in the Open Space. The site visit will be held at Marolt Place, near the paraglider landing spot on October 19th at 4 p.m. 

Information Session: As an introduction to the November 16th Open Space and Trails Board meeting, we will hold an informational session. This session will serve as a platform for project leaders to showcase detailed plans, maps, and visuals of the proposed bike skill trail. Community members are encouraged to attend this session, ask questions, and provide feedback. This information session will be held at 4 p.m. in the third-floor lobby of City Hall. 

Your Input Matters 

The City of Aspen values the input of our residents, and we look forward to utilizing that feedback to assess a trail that benefits our community while also preserving our natural resources. For more information about the upcoming community engagement initiatives and to take our survey, please visit:
