Tenderfoot Mountain Trail Project, July 20-21

Open to the public

Ages 18+

Backpacking Dinners provided

Partner: USFS Dillon Ranger District

Volunteers will assist the USFS in closing user-created trails on Tenderfoot Mountain. Unauthorized motorized use in certain places on the mountain has created areas of bare soil and resulted in erosion. Volunteers will backpack to the work site and tent camp. We'll use hand tools to reestablish the natural contour, decompact soils and close routes with signs and natural barriers.  The project will require backpacking, bending, and lifting. This is a great opportunity to participate in restoration of mountainside and the watershed.

Our project is generously supported by the National Forest Foundation's Ski Conservation Fund. Founded by Congress in 1991, the National Forest Foundation works to conserve, restore and enhance America's 193-million-acre National Forest System. Through community-based strategies and public-private partnerships, the NFF helps enhance wildlife habitat, revitalizes wildfire-damaged landscapes, restores watersheds, and improves recreational resources for the benefit of all Americans.

This project is separate from the current Tenderfoot Working Group that
is working to determine a plan of action for the Tenderfoot motorcycle
trail. Our project and partnership was initiated by the USFS and is a great fit for CMC members with interest in stewardship and skilled in backcountry travel.
