Details

If you've ever wanted to try a little trail work and give back to the trail system we use every day, then this might be your opportunity. I've been the trail adopter for this section of the Colorado Trail (Copper Mountain boundary to Searle Pass) for 7 years now and have been working dilengently to improve the trail with the help of a few others and could always use some additional help from YOU.



This one day project about 3/4 miles beyond the Guller Creek bridge involves repairing a small section of trail (approximately 50') which continually has water running through and under the trail making for a somewhat muddy mess. Our main job would be to install a rock turnpike as well as combine some rock pitching with it to further harden the trail. We'll also be installing water drainage dips to shed water from the trail location and add a drainage ditch on the up-hill side to catch any residual water flowing from the hillside.



So, I hope you'll join me and others to not only improve a vital section of trail, but in giving back to the Colorado Trail System we all use regularily!




Notes

This is only a one day project so carrying a day pack with your lunch and the "ten" essentials will be all that's necessary.

Work gloves are also required!

Any tools and other trail equipment will be supplied by the leader as well as a training and safety discussion.
