Filoha Meadows

Roaring Fork Conservancy has partnered with Pitkin County Open Space and Trails to provide naturalist guided programs at Filoha Meadows since 2005. These programs provide a rare opportunity for participants to explore the Open Space beyond the railroad grade and into the wetland area. Participants observe rare orchid and wetland species, learn about human history of the property, and find out about the many animal species who rely on this critical habitat and open space. 

For public access to the property, please refer to the Filoha Meadows Management Plan below or contact Pitkin County Open Space and Trails at 970-920-5232.
