VAIL, Colorado ” The Dowd Junction recreation path between West Vail, Colorado and Dowd Junction will reopen for the summer season Saturday.

Town of Vail crews are currently clearing the path and putting up a wildlife protection screen that allows for continued use of the path while deer are migrating through the area.

Crews also are preparing to open the recreation path from Sunburst Drive to East Vail by April 24. Other sections of recreation path within Vail that are not maintained in winter will reopen as conditions allow, with all paths expected to be cleared by early May.

The Vail Pass recreation path, which is maintained by the Colorado Department of Transportation, is scheduled to open by Memorial Day weekend.
