What is One Riverfront
For more than thirty years, One Riverfront is the volunteer board that works collaboratively with partners to foster community stewardship and enhance the Colorado and Gunnison River corridors. Described as a string of pearls the community amenities of the corridor is comprised of county lands, city parks, state parks/wildlife areas and even private lands with special easements to allow public access to the trail system.
Our Vision: A Colorado River system that is a centerpiece of the Grand Valley for ecologic, economic, cultural, and recreational values.

Support One Riverfront
The Colorado Riverfront Trail System celebrates and preserves the cottonwood groves, wetlands, cattail marshes, gravel bars and islands of the Colorado (originally the Grand) and the Gunnison Rivers. The junction of these two mighty rivers provides a beautiful and rich habitat for wildlife and riparian vegetation in an otherwise arid region. Your support ensures we can continue this preservation for future generations.
The Trail System
The Riverfront trail system connects to several other trails within the Grand Valley. It is hoped that eventually there will be a statewide trail system that will link communities via rivers and historic transportation routes. Additional maps and information on several Grand Valley trails can be found here.
