We’re excited to announce that we’ve got new trail maps! With the help of Borderlands, The Center for Community GIS and our supportive local businesses we have a new digital map, showcasing winter and summer trails and printed maps – available at all of the supportive local businesses with ads. Pick one up at your favorite local business. Suggested donation of $5.
We’ve added another option to make donations for PRKR MTN even easier! Now you can choose from Paypal, old fashioned mail and Venmo!
Take a look at this really great campaign we worked on with Bike Borderlands. Make sure to ride with gratitude while you’re out on the trails. Stop by Littleton Bike & Fitness and grab a sticker or some Ride With Gratitude socks!
A COVID-19 update from the Borderlands Team:
During this time, we ask that you wait until the pandemic has passed to travel to Borderlands destinations. Our trails will still be here, and we’ll be eager to welcome you back when it’s safe for everyone. 🌅

We will be planning a series of trail work days for PRKR MTN once it is safe to do so.
Trail work was focused mainly on two areas on Winds and Pines though trimming and clipping was done in a couple of other areas.
3 culverts were installed at the very wet, muddy area at the bottom of the new section of trail just before crossing the bridge over Palmer Brook.
Multiple large rocks and roots were removed from an area just after climbing the new section of trail where the trail traverses but then dropped into a “rock garden” followed by an off-camber narrow climb back out. On the climb, that section was “benched” and widened after removing the rocks and roots. This particular area was a big problem during the winter while grooming. There was always the risk that the equipment and the operator would slide down the edge of the embankment. There was also a risk, in particular, to inexperienced riders, that a pedal would hit one of these obstacles, and the same thing happen.
Thanks to all the volunteers that joined us. Keep an eye on Facebook for our next trail work day.
