Details

Come join Dave Callais (former cookie man in the CMC) and now volunteer adopter of segment 8.2 of the Colorado Trail as we repair sections of the Colorado Trail along Guller Creek! Due to the extremely heavy snow pack this year in the mountains, I'm limited as to the work along the CT that I can do, so this July 5th, trail work participants will help to repair the lower sections of the trail along Guller Creek which has been eroded away through the act of water flowing down the trail. We will aso remove some sections of "cupped" trail created by mountain bikers, add additional water diversion dips, trim willows and remove any newly fallen trees across the trail. With that being said, if you've always wanted to try a little trail work or maybe you just want to give back a little of your time to the Colorado Trail or to a part of the entire trail system, here's your chance to feel good about giving something back. Anyone can do it (even you ladies) and you only help out with what you're capable of helping out with. There's a job for everyone (easy or hard) and you only work as hard as you might actually want to. Any help would be greatly appreciated, plus at the end of the day, you might actually come a way from the experience wanting to do it all over again! Tools and training will be provided by the leader. So, I hope to see many of you this July 5th for a great day out on the Colorado Trail giving back to the trail system! PLEASE NOTE: EVEN THOUGH THIS HIKE/TRAIL WORK TRIP IS LISTED AS A ONE DAY AFFAIR, THE LEADER IS PLANNING TO SPEND AN ADDITIONAL TWO DAYS IN THE AREA WORKING ON THE TRAIL, SO IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN BACKPACKING INTO THE AREA FOR THE EXTRA TWO DAYS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! THE ADDITIONAL HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thanks!



Notes

Make sure you bring some work gloves out with you, as well as lunch and plenty of water for the entire day. And as a reminder for any of you thinking of spending a couple of extra days out with me, you need to let me know so I can plan for those additional days. If you decide to join me for the duration of time I'll be up there, you'll need to take care of your own food and backpacking gear as if it was a regular backpacking trip.
