Bill Manning: Thanks for tree work on Colorado Trail

Bill Manning, executive director
The Colorado Trail Foundation

We would like to thank the Dillon Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service and its contractors for their hazard tree removal work along The Colorado Trail. Their efforts have improved safety for all trail users.

I recently hiked the CT above Gold Hill and took note of the corridor improvements. All dead and dying trees within approximately 50 feet of each side of the trail have been cut down so they don’t pose a danger to trail enthusiasts. Kudos to the USFS and its contractors. They also did a fantastic job of clearing and cleaning the CT before wrapping up their work.
