In 2013 the Town of Avon
acquired 478 acres of land north of Interstate 70 between the
neighborhoods of Wildridge and Singletree from the US Forest Service.
The land was placed in a conservation easement to permanently preserve
and protect natural habitat, wildlife and native plant species as well
as provide open space for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike.
In 2014, Avon along with several partner organizations worked to form a
network of trails. The trail system was thoughtfully created in the
Preserve to protect the natural environment, open space, and wildlife
qualities of the area. It attained the International Mountain Bicycling
Association Silver-Level Ride Center Designation.
