Trail Maintenance | Habitat Restoration | Resource Conservation


When it comes to Conservation, CMC is committed to on-the-ground protection and improvement of Public Lands throughout the state. The 2018 Stewardship Crews worked across Colorado for 20 weeks to assist the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Managment maintain trails and restore natural resource areas. The crews also hosted volunteer events and partnered with numerous non-profits to assist in trail design and project managment. Additionally, over 50 conservation enthusiasts volunteered more than 350 hours of their time working with the Stewardship Team. Their hard work resulted in:

  • 209 miles of system routes inventoried

  • 471 downed trees removed

  • 5.8 miles of trail maintained

  • 440 erosion control features installed & maintained

  • 1,830 feet of fence constructed to protect natural habitats
