Volunteers at Hunter Creek

Capitol Lake Trail Project

In our overnight "Backpacking Lite" project, 36 volunteers camped overnight to repair badly damaged sections of Capitol Lake Trail.

Prince Creek Evening Projects

Over a course of 6 evenings and 1 Saturday, 164 volunteers joined us in creating a brand-new section of trail that took users off Prince Creek Road and connected with The Crown trail system. 

Hanging Lake/Spouting Rock

As one of the highest trafficked trail in Colorado, Hanging Lake earns a whole weekend. 150 volunteers restored the trail, created rock steps, and sanded/stained benches while the trail was closed to the public for the weekend.

Stairway to Heaven Trail Project

Twenty-six volunteers helped create a new connecting trail into the Colorow Trail system in New Castle.

Colorado River Trail Project

 For our last project of the season, 12 volunteers built a new soft-surface trail as part of a new boat ramp on the Colorado River in Rifle.
