You Are Here:Celebrate National Trails Day with the Mascotte Trail Project this Saturday!

Volunteer in Aspen on June 2 for National Trails Day!

From the heart of Aspen, mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners can use the Mascotte Trail to connect to Smuggler Road to access the beautiful Hunter Creek valley and Smuggler Mountain.

This local connector trail is suffering from some increasing severe drainage and maintenance issues, so on June 2nd, volunteers will be making improvements to the trail surface and drainage to repair and stabilize the significant erosion that is occurring on Mascotte Trail.

Why volunteer?

When volunteering with Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers, you’ll meet community members committed to maintaining our spectacular public lands. RFOV is looking for any and all volunteers who want to take part in this community project. From improving drainage with rock structures to performing trail maintenance, you’ll be sure to find a volunteer task that suits you.

Dinner will be included with your day’s work. For the last 23 years, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers has been committed to engaging the community in trail and conservation projects from Aspen to Parachute, and they hope to improve a local connector that the neighborhood can use and enjoy.

Volunteering is for Everyone!

Public projects with RFOV are designed to actively engage our community in the stewardship of our public lands. For anyone who wants to get involved, whether you’ve never attended a project before or are a current volunteer, you’re invited to join in on this project. RFOV provides the tools, resources, and trained crew leaders to ensure that everyone has a rewarding experience, no matter how new to trail projects you are. And, as even more incentive, volunteers are entered to win prizes including a CIMA Cycles Highlands bike worth $4,500 thanks to the partnership of CIMA Cycles, Ute City Cycles, and RFMBA.

If you’re looking for something a little less physical, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers is also looking for volunteers to help with recruiting, committees, and more. There are so many ways to give back to our trails and public lands – and you’ll get to be outside and in the sunshine while giving back.
