Bill Mentock, former Trails Board member and namesake of one of the trails, said the new Grouse Mountain Trail is another great addition to the city's trail system.

After the ceremony some of those on hand christened the new Grouse Mountain Trail by enjoyed a hike on the 5.2-mile addition to the Clear Creek Trail System.
