STATE FORESTERS PROVIDING FREE LOT EVALUATIONS AND POSSIBLE GRANT FUNDS FOR THINNING
Colorado State Foresters are currently doing free lot evaluations and providing individual recommendations for fire mitigation to improve your home’s safety in case of wildfire. To schedule an appointment on your lot, phone Damon Lange’s office and leave a phone number and time when he can reach you to schedule a date. This service is available this winter only (except for the week between Christmas and New Years). If the work to be done qualifies, there could be grant money available to help with ½ the labor expenses (until funding runs out). This is a great opportunity for Game Trail folks to get the thinning they have been thinking about done this winter, so do not hesitate to call. Damon’s office # is (719) 539-2579.

GAME TRAIL RESIDENTS ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT PHOTOS FOR THE WEBSITE
Attention all shutterbugs and those who enjoy beautiful photos! The website's photo galleries are in the process of being reorganized and updated. You can view new photos from the "Recent Game Trail Photos" tab at the top of the home page. Older photos are viewable from the "Game Trail Photo Archives" tab. Additionally, we now have an email address for residents to submit photos for inclusion on the website. Of particular interest are photos of Game Trail and Buena Vista area wildlife and scenic views. Please send your digital photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org for everyone to enjoy.
Information about the Buena Vista community can be found by exploring the community links to other websites not affiliated with Game Trail. Game Trail Association is the Homeowners' Association that is responsible for the maintenance of the common property in Game Trail, a Colorado Mountain Community. Located on the east side of the Sawatch Mountain Range of the Continental Divide in the Upper Arkansas River Valley just northwest of the Town of Buena Vista, Game Trail enjoys temperate weather with a wide range of outdoor recreation to enjoy in every one of the four seasons. The elevation of Game Trail provides unmatched views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Check out the Image Gallery for pictures of the scenery, Game Trail life, and local wildlife.
To protect the elk migration patterns in the Upper Arkansas Valley, a section of Game Trail is an elk preserve with an elk corridor where no development will occur. The 300-400 elk that winter in the valley can find refuge in Game Trail while foraging in the meadows and enjoying the winter sun.
Information about living in the Game Trail community is concisely presented in the Living in Game Trail pamphlet. Living in Game Trail Pamphlet
