Trail Tune-Up Grant Program

2019 UCI MTB W Champs Riley Amos Resized

The Trail Tune-up Grants are funded by donors to the USA Cycling Foundation DirtFund. A portion of all gifts to the DirtFund are restricted to Trail Tune-Up projects, which create or improve trails used for mountain biking. Grants may be used to improve trails for racing, training and recreational riding, and to build new trails from scratch.

Grant Recipients

Cloud City Wheelers, Lake County, CO


The Cloud City Wheelers of Lake County, Colorado were the latest grant recipient, now launching a project to build 8 new miles of mountain bike-optimized trails in the Turquoise Lake Recreation Area of the San Isabel National Forest. This project will take place in recently logged terrain and will take advantage of unique land formations left from the glacial era.

The new Turquoise Lake Trails will cater to a variety of riders seeking to take in the views of the surrounding Sawatch and Mosquito Mountain Ranges. The new trailhead is located at the Leadville Junction Area, where the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad once met with the Colorado Midland Railroad along the banks of the Arkansas River. These new trails will join the existing 6 mile long Turquoise Lake Trail and the existing campgrounds to make a perfect trail destination.

The next round of Trail Tune-Up grants will take place in January of 2021.
