Ice Cave Creek Project, September 14
Open to the public
Bring your Lunch
This project is sponsored by the Rampart Range Wildlands Project of the
Colorado Mountain Club. The project entails a 0.4 mile reroute of trail
in the Ice Cave Creek drainage above Palmer Lake. Volunteers will have a
short, but steep hike up to the work site. Volunteers must bring work
clothes & gloves, water, snacks, sunscreen, and hat.The existing
trail up Ice Cave Creek is hazardous and eroding. It cannot be repaired
in place, so we will be realigning the lower portion of the trail so it
stays higher on the ridge and joins the Palmer Reservoir trail between
the reservoirs. This is a rare chance to build new trail, and a rare
trail opportunity in northern El Paso County. It is also a BIG
project,so we need lots of volunteers and crew leaders. The result will
be better access into the Ice Cave Creek drainage and opportunities for
loop hikes from Palmer Lake.This project will be completed through a
partnership with Town of Palmer Lake, CMC Denver Group, CMC Pikes Peak
Group, Friends of the Peak and Friends of Monument Preserve.If you are a
CMC member, it is recommended that you log on to register.
Once the project is full, we will not be able to accommodate any
additional volunteers. This is for safety's sake - to retain a safe crew
leader to volunteer ratio. Please note that
we will be working on the trail on October 12.
You may sign up for those projects on the CMC calendar.
Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
