Elk Meadow Stagecoach Trailhead

Part of the Elk Meadow Open Space, the upper trailhead off of Stagecoach Boulevard has outgrown current user ship. Valerian and the design team are currently developing a new site plan that will expand the parking lot capacity, add trailhead amenities such as new trail kiosks and vault bathrooms and will relocate picnic areas. Proposed improvements will also increase ADA access. Given the valued existing conditions of the site, Valerian has paid particular attention to situating new amenities into the topography while still preserving as many existing trees as possible and highlighting the beautiful views of the meadows. Additional improvements include the widening of westbound Stagecoach Boulevard to appropriately handle increased visitors. Once completed, the new trailhead will also serve Stagecoach South, which has undergone a stabilization and restoration plan and will re-open as a dog friendly on-leash trail system.
