Steamboat briefs: Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund challenge ends Sunday

An anonymous donor has challenged locals and those who want to be locals of Yampa Valley to not only enjoy their favorite trails but support them with a donation to the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund.
"The new campaign is about encouraging more users — hikers, runners, bikers and horseback riders of all skill levels — to consider what their favorite local trails are worth and give whatever amount is reasonable to help ensure the trails are available into perpetuity," said Helen Beall, marketing manager at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation, in a news release.
All donations by new donors will be matched until the $5,000 goal is met and the last day to donate so that a donation is matched is Sunday.
Individuals are invited to participate by visiting to donate. For more information about the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund, contact Beall at 970-879-8632 or
