Shelter Reconstruction Underway

Several neglected historic shelters in the DMP system are getting upgrades, thanks to DMPF’s capital campaign, and more projects are planned. We’re happy to see these projects moving forward, thanks to all our donors!

In conjunction with the construction of CDOT’s bike trail along I-70 from Exit 254 to Exit 252, a new Bison Overlook has been built. The site off Stapleton Drive at Exit 253 will be a pleasant rest stop for bikers and will include interpretive signs.

This “hidden” shelter north of I-70 will soon be ON the beaten path. Bypassed and tucked behind a billboard, the Chief Hosa Shelter has sat unused since I-70 separated it from the campground and Lodge south of the highway. Now cleaned up, the shelter is scheduled for full restoration, providing another stopping spot along the new CDOT bikeway.
