Details

Ben Tyler Trail is a popular hiking trail with CMC Denver (and eveyone else for that matter) just west of Bailey off Hwy-285.  From TH it immediately climbs a steep hill on a series of switchbacks.  Fencing exists along the switchbacks to prevent shortcutting but it has fallen into disrepair and new shortcutting is obserevd.  We will rehab the fence where needed (install up to 10 posts and many rails) and perform cleanup removing some barb wire and an old gate.  This is not heavy duty work although digging fence holes can require a rock bar (our least favorite tool) but at least we don't have far to carry such.  A few pics of the project site are here https://www.flickr.com/photos/133662227@N04/sets/72157707802420585



This project is in cooperation with USFS.  Special thanks to the always vigilant Bob Hunter for spotting the problem and giving us a heads up.
