VAIL — The Dowd Junction recreation trail will reopen for the season by Friday, if weather conditions allow. Opening the trail requires the installation of a wildlife protection screen, which allows for continued use of the trail during the deer migration season.
The recreation trail from Sunburst Drive to East Vail will be plowed open by April 25. Other sections of recreation trails within Vail that are not maintained in winter will reopen as conditions allow, with all paved trails expected to be cleared and open by April 30.
