trails: update

The Trail Dogs of Cheyenne Mountain State Park have been very active throughout the spring and summer. Not only have they nearly completed much of the Archery Range Trail along Pine Oaks Road, they have spent several Saturday’s doing prep work on the Dixon Trail that will eventually connect the lower park trails to the trail loop at the top of Cheyenne Mountain. While they’ve devoted a great deal of time to these two projects, they have also found time to work at grooming the the twenty miles of trails within the lower park.

On September 14 and 15, our local crews will join with the Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado to take a major swing at pushing up the Dixon Trail. This joint venture, sponsored by the park, the Friends of Cheyenne Mountain, and the VOC should make a significant step forward on the trail. For anyone who might be interested, go to VOC’s website( to sign up for this great volunteer opportunity.
