Colorado Mountain Club is partnering other Colorado outdoor stewardship groups and the U.S. Forest Service through the National Forest Foundation Find Your Fourteener campaign so that together we can do more on our majestic Fourteeners. We are working collaboratively to increase the pace and scale of trail improvements and ecological restoration. Our vision is to work together, with you, to build and maintain a sustainable trails network, ensuring these peaks remain healthy and inviting for decades to come. With help from skilled, passionate volunteers like you, we can complete even more on-the-ground work on Colorado’s Fourteeners. Every volunteer in the Fourteener community is important in this long-term effort, and we are grateful for your help!

Mount Elbert is one of the Find Your Fourteener priority peaks based on an immediate need to address excessive trail erosion, braiding, and widening through a new alignment and restoration. There are excellent opportunities – with proven success – to meet these needs by engaging in collaborative stewardship through extended youth corps seasons, volunteer engagement, and other creative approaches to support an increased pace and scale of on-the-ground work.

The overall goal of the South Mount Elbert Realignment and Restoration Project is to complete one mile of new trail construction and to restore approximately 20,000 square feet of trail area to complete the new South Elbert Trail realignment. Work will primarily occur between 10,200 feet and 13,500 feet. The South Mount Elbert Trail, Forest Service Trail #1481 (also known as the “East Ridge Route”) is located on the Leadville Ranger District of the San Isabel National Forest.

The 2018 scope of work on Mount Elbert will build on the first season of work in 2017, led by the Forest Service, Colorado Fourteeners Initiative (CFI), Colorado Mountain Club (CMC), Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (RMYC), Wildland Restoration Volunteers (WRV) and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC).
