An easement is a property interest that allows use of a portion of a property by someone other than the property owner. The majority of the Arcade-Cripple Creek Trail Project’s alignment is located within existing public park lands and public right-of-way. However, portions of the trail are located within existing pedestrian and bikeway easements on private property.
The presence and location of easements can be found on the recorded subdivision maps and assessor’s parcel maps. Easements are also typically listed on title reports which are provided to property owners upon purchase of a property.
