On May 1st, Wildsight Golden will start a feasibility study for a Community Wellness Trail in or near the Town of Golden.
What is the proposed Community Wellness Trail?
An accessible and inclusive trail located in the Town of Golden or Area A that is used for the purposes of wellness and education.
Examples include, but are not limited to: walk and talk therapy, meditation, forest and nature bathing, yoga, interpretive walks, physiotherapy, physical rehabilitation, mindfulness, and gentle strolls.
This trail would not be accessible to bikes, motorized vehicles, other forms of sporting activities, or pet walkers.
The trail would be open to the community with local practitioners being able to book the trail for private use for a limited period of time each week.
Have your input on whether or not this would be a great fit for Golden and what you would like to see in this type of trail on our short questionnaire here.
UPDATE: October 30, 2023
The feasibility study is here.
It was such a big file that I broke it up into pieces if you prefer to view it as a pdf. :
The Golden Community Foundation was able to see the vision and fund this feasibility study, which we consider phase 1 of the project.
The project work plan incorporates Definition of use, location scouting, identify trail building team, assess logistics for phase 2.
Wildsight Golden gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Golden & District Community Foundation which provides leadership and support that helps in addressing significant community needs.
