Carbon County would like to thank the Carbon County Recreation and Transportation Special Service District (CCRTSSD) as a partner and major source of the funding for the Castle Country Trail System. Nearly a decade in planning and implementation, members of the CCRTSSD have been supporters of the Castle Country Trail System.
The special service district has also voiced their thanks to the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative for their generous grant for the trail markers, “Since the beginning stages of planning and construction of the trail system, the special
service district has emphasized the importance of a safe trail system for its users. The purchase and installation of the trail markers will complete this exciting project for Carbon County. The Castle Country Trail System will be a great asset for the citizens of Carbon County and beyond.”
Among numerous other projects, the CCRTSSD has provided the funds needed to conduct the environmental assessment and environmental impact statement, secure right-of-ways, make trail improvements to increase safety and install a comfort station near the Old Western Town Site adjacent to Consumers Road.
Collaboration with organizations in and out of the community, such as Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative and Carbon County Recreation and Transportation Special Service District have made the trail system a reality which will provide better access to recreational opportunities for residents of the area. The financial assistance of these two organizations has helped reduce the taxpayer burden and increase tourism in the area while promoting open riding areas. The efforts of these organizations should not go unnoticed.
