What to Expect

RFOV and our partners are excited to invite volunteers to help us create a new multi-use trail in Rifle. This ongoing project will increase Rifle’s outdoor recreation opportunities by adding several miles of easily accessible trails. Volunteers will be using hand tools to build a natural surface trail, remove rocks from the ground, and trim branches. A variety or work will be available for all skill levels. We will be celebrating with dinner and drinks to end the day.
