On May 1st, Wildsight Golden will start a feasibility study for a Community Wellness Trail in or near the Town of Golden.
What is a community wellness trail, one might ask? (I did!)
The idea is to create a quiet space where people can experience nature without interruption of dogs bounding through or bikes and people whizzing past. This would be a tranquil space where people could meditate, forest bathe, do yoga or just sit and “be” in a natural space with only natural noises. There is currently no accessible community area or trail dedicated to the purpose of eco wellness in Golden.
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. Phase 2 will be to acquire land ,build the infrastructure needed and certify the trail.
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.
