What to expect

Volunteers will be building a new section of trail to replace a very steep and eroded section of the Skyline Ridge Trail. This reroute will move the trail from the original road onto a singletrack trail and improve sightlines.

Registration

Please check in at the RFOV table upon arrival. The table will be located at the Viewline trailhead on Highline Road in Snowmass Village. Volunteers will be hiking or biking to Skyline Ridge and splitting into crews from there.

Meals

RFOV and our project partners will provide dinner and drinks after each evening of trail work. Please bring your own water and snacks.
