Bozeman Trail Event, Tonight, July 23rd

Thursday, July 23, 6-7pm Trail Event
If you want to have a say about the new County trail plan, or if you just want to be part of a fun event, please join GVLT tonight (Thursday, July 23) from 6:00 - 7:00 pm for a run, bike or walk on the Main Street to the Mountains trails from Goldenstein to the Library.  See the attached map with the route highlighted in orange.

This is GVLT's stage of the Gallatin County Interconnect Challenge (Bozeman Chronicle article)

Everyone who participates will get a free GVLT trail map!
Meet at the parking lot on Goldenstein at 6:00 pm and head to the Library, where you'll be met by Gallatin County representatives and Bozeman Mayor Kaaren Jacobsen who will take your comments on trails, bike lanes and parks.  Gallatin County is in the process of creating a new trails & parks plan which they're calling the Gallatin County Interconnect Plan.  This is a great opportunity to have a voice in the priorities that will be set in the plan.

Please note that if you choose to walk (vs. run or bike), to get to the Library in an hour you'll have to walk fast.  However, Mayor Jacobsen and the County representatives will be there until 8:00 pm.

Also, please note that if you can't join us Thursday evening, you can submit comments on the Interconnect Challenge Blog.  Click one of the "comments" links below any of the images and type in your thoughts or concerns:

We're hoping for a good turnout so we hope to see you Thursday evening.  If possible please RSVP to so that we've got a rough count of how many people are coming.  The County legal department wants everyone who participates to sign a waiver (obviously a bit more relevant for some of the other stages than for this one), so we want a rough idea of how many we'll need to have on hand.

Hope you can join us!  Kids are welcome!
