What better way to celebrate our public lands that are such an integral part of Colorado's unique identity than by improving access to them! Though this date is one week before the official NPLD day we will be celebrating early by building new trail in Buena Vista Colorado on BLM managed land.

CMC in partnership with the BLM and Buena Vista Single Track Coalition(BVSC) will host a trail construction project in recognition of National Public Lands Day on September 21st 2019 from 8:30 to 3:00-ish. We will be building the last section of new construction on the newly named "Unchained" trail connecting Bacon Bits to Django. Lunch and post work beverages generously provided by Eddyline Brewery! 

Please meet at the Midland Trailhead on County Road 304 by 8:30 ready to hike approx 1.5 miles to the work site prepared to work untill approx 2:30 with:

Water for the day( at least 2 liters)

Work Gloves

Sturdy closed toe shoes

Sunglasses or Safety Glasses 

Day Pack



No experience needed! BVSC and project partners will provide all tools and leadership for the day. Please come join us and lend a hand on your Public Lands!
