Five Valleys Secures Mount Dean Stone Trail Corridor

At the close of the year, our lands staff was happy to announce that they had finalized three land deals that will provide a trail corridor around the Mount Dean Stone ridge. This achievement marks the culmination of years of listening, negotiations and patience, and stands as a major milestone for the greater Mount Dean Stone project.

“It completes the corridor from the South Hills Spur to the top of Mount Dean Stone. These three land deals will allow us, as a community, to have a trail go around the top of the mountain connecting to the backside." - Whitney Schwab, Philanthropy Director

For now, the corridor is still closed to public access. But going into 2020, Five Valleys will be working with the Mount Dean Stone Committee, our many partners, and the greater community to develop a trail for the corridor and explore ways to create innovative, grassroots-driven open space across Mount Dean Stone south. Stay tuned!
