This incredibly scenic trail was built in 2013-2014 by a lot of community volunteers led by Pikes Peak Group and Denver Group of the Colorado Mountain Club. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since we finished building it! It’s holding up pretty darn well, but it’s time to do some maintenance and repair in some areas. The goal (besides not getting hurt and having fun) is to fix any minor problems and then leave this trail in good shape for many years to come.
Volunteers will have a short, but sometimes steep hike up the Palmer Reservoir Road to the work site. Volunteers must bring work clothes & gloves, water, snacks, sunscreen, and hat. This project is open to the public — but you must sign up in advance. If you are a CMC member, it is recommended that you log on to register; non-CMC members will have to sign a liability waiver.
Once the project is full, we will not be able to accommodate any additional volunteers. This is for safety’s sake – to retain a safe crew leader to volunteer ratio – and due to the number of tools available. Please cancel if needed to make room for others, and join the wait list if the trip is full.
