Lunch Loop Connector Trail Ground Breaking Event

2017.2.17 Project Context Map

The City of Grand Junction, Colorado West Land Trust, Mesa County and the many other partners are celebrating the ground breaking of the Lunch Loop Connector Trail on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. in the Lunch Loop Trailhead Parking Lot off of Monument Road. This $2.5 million project will link some of the Grand Valley’s most popular amenities and neighborhoods to the world renown and community favorite Lunch Loop and Three Sisters trail system. With the construction of this 1.5-mile Trail in late 2019, outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities will enjoy a safe and almost seamless outdoor linear park that connects Las Colonias, the Audubon Trail, Connected Lakes, downtown Grand Junction, and the Lunch Loops and Three Sisters open space.

  • Great Outdoors Colorado
  • Bureau of Land Management
  • Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program/National Parks Service
  • Gates Family Foundation
  • Colorado Parks & Wildlife
  • Bacon Family Foundation
  • El Pomar Foundation
