This popular access to Summit County Trails has been loved to death. We're partnering with the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District and the Town of Frisco to give it a much needed transformation. WRV volunteers constructed bridges and boardwalks on the trail in August, now we are returning as the aspens are changing to revegetate and stabilize sensitive riparian areas!

Join us in the spectacular Indian Peaks Wilderness, west of Brainard Lake. This area is one of the most popular wilderness areas in the country, which has caused a great deal of impact to the Pawnee Pass Lake trail. Volunteers will perform trail maintenance on a section of trail between Long Lake and Lake Isabelle. This one-day event is great for trail-building newcomers and veterans alike!

WRV has been working in the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Brainard Lake area for over a decade, and volunteers tell us this is one of the most rewarding locations in which to work! We'll be continuing work completed by volunteer crews during two weekends earlier this summer.

Volunteers will be completing 1800 ft of new natural surface trail to complete a new hiking trail loop at Fillius Park, create ADA access to the historical shelter, and reclaim old roads and parking lots that are no longer being utilized.

The Young Gulch trail was a very popular destination in the Poudre River Watershed. It was closed after the High Park Fire burned through in 2012, and remained closed due to flood damage that fall and again in 2013. Much of the original trail with all its creek crossings is washed away. Now we have the opportunity to build a new trail: more fun and resilient, with less disturbance to the creek and the Cache La Poudre downstream.

We've constructed almost 3 miles of trail meaning this season we'll be working some distance from the trailhead. We'll have a backcountry base-camp set up so that volunteers can choose to camp with us closer to the work area or to hike in daily. Please let us know your preference and register for the BACKCOUNTRY camping project on our schedule, listed for the same days.

We have some basic camping gear available for those who don't have their own.

WRV is very pleased to work collaboration with the USFS, Overland Mountain Bike Club, Poudre Wilderness Volunteers, Larimer County Conservation Corps, and CATS on this exciting multi-year effort.

This is the same weekend as the regular Young Gulch event but participants in the Back Country project will be hiking in Friday evening at 6pm or Saturday morning at 6am and staying at our fully outfitted basecamp 2.5 miles in on the trail. You get to work in the most remote parts of the trail, won't have to carry tools in and we have some basic camping gear to lend. Please make a note in your registration if you need to borrow camping gear ahead of time.
