This project is sponsored by the Rampart Range Wildlands Project of the
Colorado Mountain Club. This year's work picks up where we left off last year, after building 0.4 miles of new trail along the Ice Cave Creek drainage above Palmer Lake. In 2014, we are realigning and repairing trail further up the canyon.  Volunteers will have a
short, but sometimes steep hike up the Palmer Reservoir Road to the work site. Volunteers must bring work
clothes & gloves, water, snacks, sunscreen, and hat.  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 the Cap Rock area 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, and Friends of the Peak.  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 - and due to the number of tools available.  Please cancel if needed to make room for others, and join the wait list if the trip is full.


Later work days will be August 9, Sept 13, and Oct 11.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
