In 2012, the Waldo Canyon Fire burned over 18,000 acres west of Colorado Springs. The fire damaged the once-beloved Waldo Canyon Trail, which has remained closed to the public since the fire was contained.

Six years later, the U.S. Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Field Institute, Trails and Open Space Coalition, the City of Colorado Springs, and other partners are embarking on a public planning process to reimagine the Waldo Canyon Corridor including trails, public access, and outdoor recreation opportunities.

This is the project website, which will serve as a clearinghouse for all information related to the project.
