Walking and bicycling can be a fun and healthy way to enjoy our beautiful state, and the Colorado Department of Transportation encourages residents to make bicycling and walking a part of their regular routine.

From the Safe Routes to School Program to the Share the Road Campaign, you will find information and resources to help you learn more about safe bicycling and walking. You can also learn more about the various health and economic benefits of bicycling and walking, and find the resources you need to make your community more bike and pedestrian friendly. You can even get involved in Colorado’s annual Bike to Work Day, or learn how to plan your own walking or bicycling event.

Trail Sign Project
CDOT asked 30 local recreational centers and trail agencies to place these signs along community trails to provide trail-use education statewide.

“They look fabulous! I like how the green backgrounds make the content readable, but don't overly interrupt the beauty of the trail. I enjoyed working on this project.” Nicole Brinn, Graphic Designer, Integrated Document Solutions

A special thanks to Allison Kincaid, Executive Director, Colorado Parks and Recreation Association, who made it possible to reach these trail groups and get signs distributed statewide.

Safe & Happy Trails!
