Developing Urban Single Track Trail and Team (DUST2) is exploring the possibility of developing a multi-use trail system in the Jackson Mountain area of the San Juan National
Forest. Preliminary discussions and field visits with Forest Service personnel have been promising, and while many uncertainties exist, DUST2 was recently awarded a grant by the
Archuleta Board of County Commissioners to assist in funding an environmental analysis that would be required if the project were taken into formal consideration.

We will continue to work with other partners and the U.S. Forest Service on this exciting endeavor, with the hope that a conceptual design of a trail network can be completed by next
summer and potentially be taken into formal consideration and analysis by the Forest Service in the not-too-distant future.

DUST2 is a volunteer-run, membership-based youth cycling and trail advocacy non-profit founded in 2016 by a group of locals who are passionate about trail advocacy and youth
cycling in Pagosa Springs. In the four years of its existence, DUST2 has run a successful youth cycling team program and has engaged both adult and youth volunteers in over 4,000
volunteer hours planning, building and maintaining single track trails on local public lands. We aim to instill in our community a sense of trail ownership and stewardship and promote the
sport of mountain biking through the planning, construction and maintenance of sustainable multi-use trail systems.
