Impact

Hikers, Bikers & Climbers

The Greewnay Trail has the potential to add significant numbers of visitors and dollars to the communities in Clear Creek County.  See some info below from the Office of Outdoor Recreation Industries "Economic and Health Benefits of Bicycling and Walking Report."

Bicycling has an estimated $1.1 billion impact on the Colorado economy. Household spending in-state on bicycles; bicycle goods, equipment, and accessories; and the costs related to participating in bicycle events, races, and vacations contributes an estimated $434 million. Bicycle retail and manufacturing exports contributes another $185 million to the Colorado economy. Bicycle tourism by out-of-state visitors contributes $448 million.

Walking, just walking, has an estimated $497 million economic impact on the Colorado economy. Household spending in-state on walking-related equipment and the costs related to day hiking accounts for the entire economic impact.
