Several Summit County mountain bike stewardship groups will host trail work days this month.

On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District will lead a trail construction day to finish up work on the new Groovy Uvi trail reroute in the Soda Creek trail system. The workday will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the group will access Groovy Uvi via the Whispering Pines trailhead.

On Sept. 11, the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District will host a Spruce Creek Turnpike construction day after working on the project Wednesday, Sept. 2. The work will help finish a new turnpike — or elevated trail tread that helps with drainage and sustainability — on the highly used Spruce Creek Trail.

On Sept. 12, the Friends of Breckenridge Trails will construct a new trail extending the Little Corporal Trail to the top of Gold Run Road in Breckenridge. To sign up and for more information, visit
