The Rocky Mountain Youth Corps completed trail work at the Frisco Peninsula Recreation Area in early June.

The work was completed by an all-woman crew. The group extended trails and connected existing trails while also building new hiking-only trails. 

That includes a 1,500-foot extension of the Perimeter Trail that now connects with the existing Perimeter Tail from the west to the Frisco Nordic Center. It also included a 750-foot hiking-only trail called Little Lottie.

The Youth Corps intentionally selected the all-female crew to allow women-identifying individuals to learn how to work in conservation with the support of like-minded women. The Ladies Youth Crew worked over a two-week period while also learning Leave No Trace principles, team building and communication skills.
