A Terrain Hopper like this one will be available for use at the Fountain Creek Nature Center starting July 26.

El Paso County Community Services Department has recently purchased two off-road Terrain Hoppers with the support of The Independence Center to be used by members of the community with physical limitations. These vehicles will create opportunities to experience nature in new ways. Beginning in July, these will expand the number of accessible outdoor opportunities and trails within the county at no cost.

As part of this program, the county's nature centers will be training volunteers to accompany participants as they journey the trails in the Terrain Hopper vehicles. Volunteers will provide assistance to their fellow community members as they access trails and natural resources they may not have previously experienced.

Terrain Hopper reservations will be offered July 26-Oct. 29, both morning and afternoon. Bear Creek Nature Center reservations will take place Thursdays and Saturdays, and Fountain Creek Nature Center reservations will be Fridays and Saturdays.

Volunteers are needed to help facilitate use of the Terrain Hoppers. Pre-registration and complete application are required for training classes.

To register for the July 23 training at Fountain Creek Nature Center, contact Jessica Miller at 719-520-6765 or [email protected]
