Join the Friends of Eagles Nest Wilderness for trail maintenance

The Friends of Eagles Nest Wildernest trail maintenance day gateway project is Saturday, June 21.

Please come out and help perform maintenance on trails which are used and enjoyed by all. Local trails receive enormous visitation and need some cleaning up after the winter. Work is needed on clearing brush, downed timber, installing signs, water bars and a host of other things.

Volunteers will receive a light breakfast including coffee, bagels and juice. The day will end with a tailgate full of beer, chips and snacks. It’s always a fun way to bring in the summer and give something back to the wilderness.

Participants will meet at 8 a.m. at the Dillon Ranger District Office in Silverthorne, about a half-mile north of the intersection of Interstate 70 and Highway 9.

Volunteers will do trail maintenance at various locations in the Summit County portion of the Eagles Nest Wilderness.

Bring lunch, water, sturdy boots, raingear and work gloves. Volunteers will hike a few miles and be out on the trails for the day.

If you would like to participate, please R.S.V.P. to Jonathan at (970) 262-2399 or Currie at (970) 453-9056. Feel free to call with any questions.
