ARAPAHOE COUNTY - Business diners went there to see their ties cut off and pinned to the wall. Families took children there to ride the slide. Now, demolition is underway of the old Trail Dust Steak House building.
The restaurant has been closed since 2009. Another business made a run at success inside the red barn-like structure but didn't survive. The building sat empty until this week when demolition began.
Trail Dust was a landmark for travelers heading south well before the bright lights of IKEA and the traffic patterns of Park Meadows Mall.
The View House restaurant is opening its second Denver area location at the site. The old building will be replaced with a new structure that will hold a rooftop bar.
