Scott Lancaster Trail

  • 11/15/2023 - The section of the Clear Creek Trail from 2 Bears Tap & Grill (I-70 exit# 244) to Hidden Valley/Central City Parkway(I-70 exit 243) is closed indefinitely while underground utilities are buried in preparation for the I-70 Floyd Hill project.  The county is currently looking for a solution to accommodate non motorized passage through this section, but currently  the only non motorized detour of this section involves a lengthy trip on Colorado Highway 103 over Mestaa'ehehe Pass.
