HistoryIn 1966 North Jeffco Metropolitan and Recreation District was granted 200 acres for North Jeffco Mountain Park from the Bureau of Land Management, through the National Recreation and Public Purposes Act. By 1976, three miles of foot trails and picnic tables were installed. It was hoped North Jeffco would have the first Braille Trail constructed in the State, and in 1989 Arvada- Jefferson Kiwanis organization refurbished the trail by contributing $100 and labor. Because of its remote area, it would be too difficult to manage or maintain as a Braille or a Mountain Park.
