  • Hinsdale County purchased a peninsula and island on Lake San Cristobal just over a year ago. As KVNF’s Laura Palmisano reports, the county now plans to move ahead with renovations at the property. Coal Basin, near Redstone, was the site of mining disasters last century. Now, a privately-owned parcel surrounded by National Forest land provides public access to custom mountain bike trails. As KDNK’s Morgan Neely reports, the trails offer recreation, while mitigating the environmental destruction left behind by the mine's operators.
