Town of Palisade Invites Community to Celebrate the Completion of the Palisade Plunge
PALISADE, Colo. — The Town of Palisade, the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association (COPMOBA), and Palisade Plunge Trail project partner organizations are pleased to announce the Palisade Plunge Trail is open for public use. Palisade Mayor Greg Mikolai and the Board of Trustees invite everyone to a celebration of the grand opening of the Palisade Plunge Trail, Friday, July 23, from 5 – 9 p.m., Downtown 3rd & Main Street.
“Please join the town to celebrate this amazing trail accomplishment that took over 12 years and many people to make happen,” said Greg Mikolai, Town of Palisade Mayor. “Come enjoy music and food.”
“The Palisade Plunge Trail is a unique and unforgettable trail experience, providing access to remote public lands while traversing stunning alpine to high desert terrain as it connects the top elevations of the Grand Mesa to the Town of Palisade, 6,000 feet below,” said Scott Winans, President of COPMOBA and member of the ORC Leadership Council.
COPMOBA has spearheaded the Palisade Plunge Trail project for nearly 12 years, which takes riders from the top of the Grand Mesa (10,700’) to the Town of Palisade (4,700’) on a challenging, terrain-shifting, and visually stunning single-track trail.
The Palisade Plunge trail will be one of only a handful of such trails in the country and is expected to contribute a minimum of $5 million annually to the local economy.
