GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The Grand Valley's economy is set to get a big boost in the coming months with a brand new trail system to attract adventurous tourists.

The Mesa Land trust held a grand opening for the Three Sisters Trails on Thursday afternoon, and several local businesses say they're looking forward to the benefits the sisters will bring.

"That just brings in more people moving to the area, more businesses, increases employment, as well as brings in tourists," says Mesa Land Trust project coordinator, Libby Collins. "As we expand this area and the city helps us to expand this area, what we're realizing is that we're bringing more dollars and more business development to the area."

More visitors equals more dollars, and more dollars means a stronger economy, which is a welcomed change.

The Mesa Land Trust is currently working on the 'book end project,' raising funds to eventually expand the lunch loop on both sides.

Their eventual goal is to build a trail that will span from lunch loop, all the way down to the Colorado River-Front Trail System.
