2019 Trail Crew Schedule

To All Current and Potential Trail Crew Members:
We are looking forward to this upcoming season and hope to see some of the “Old Dogs,” as well as a whole crop of eager new pups. This will be the thirteenth year for this program, and we truly believe it is essential to the health and well-being of our trail system.

For some of us, we’ve got some more work to fully complete the already open Dixon Trail. Though the trail was officially opened this past November, we’ve got some areas that need refinement. Because of the degree of difficulty in reaching those areas, we’ll try to give you plenty of warning as we add in those projects to our calendar.

Especially for new recruits, our Trail Crews primarily perform routine maintenance on the 20 miles of our existing trail system. That can mean anything from pruning overhanging greenery to cleaning and re-building erosion control devices. That means we accept all interested parties(under 15 must be accompanied by an adult) who have an interest in working outdoors.

We typically meet at the Visitors Center. Trail Daystart times vary from 7:00AM to 10:00AM, depending on time of year and weather. End times are generally between 2:00 to 3:00PM. Though I haven’t slotted in any trail evenings yet, I plan to add them as needed. Trail Eveningtimes are 5:00 till dark. Check the online calendar for current dates and times. Once you are on our crew list, you will also be contacted weekly by one of our trail crew coordinators with upcoming projects.

If you are interested in helping on a trail crew, and haven’t already registered, contact Senior Ranger Darcy Mount at darcy.mount@state.co.us. Our crews are led by experienced crew leaders.

On work days, please wear long pants, sturdy work shoes, and work gloves, and bring rain gear, sun-screen, insect repellant, eye-protection, a daypack to carry it, and plenty of water.  Bring a lunch and/or snack on trail days.
