Trail Work Coordinator:


Update 7/8/21

The plan is to meet at 8am on Saturday and Sunday July 10th and 11th by the school in Silverton. We’ll distribute tools and disperse into different groups from there.

Don’t forget to bring food, water, gloves, and sunglasses. If you happen to have a favorite tool you want to use, bring it along!

On Sunday also, Trevor Peterson and Baker McKonly are meeting some folks at 8am at the Bear Creek Trailhead in Ouray. So if you’re over that direction feel free to meet them there, if not…see you in Silverton!

If you're certain you'll be at trailwork, please add your name & email to the master list.

The Hardrock Trail Work days will be July 10-11, 2021. They are typically held the Saturday/Sunday of the weekend before the run.

Pitch in 8 or 16 hours of support to the local trails, earning our dirt and giving back to the trails we love. Fill out the volunteer form to get on the mailing list for more info, but each day is open to all-comers, whether pre-registered or not. Each morning's meetup is typically at the Silverton Gym, but you’ll want to be on the list to know for sure. All skill levels, from beginners on up are welcome. Gloves, long pants & closed-toed shoes required, and bring your own water - tools are provided (but you're welcome to bring your own).

Both days will start with signing waivers, a safety/technical talk, and carpools out to the worksites. Expect to do up to 5-10miles of hiking each day as part of the work.

Weather can vary greatly, and we'll be spending much of our time at or above 10,000'. Weather could range from the mid-30's to the high 70's. Bring hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen as well as a quality rain jacket and other warm clothes.

We are looking for a handful of people who are willing to get trained to be Trail Bosses/Crew Leaders. Each trail boss will lead a group of 6 - 10 volunteers.
