Thanks for trail work

The Board of Friends of Eagles Nest Wilerness would like to send a “thank you” to the volunteers who did trail work on Saturday, June 28.

The work on Eaglesmere, Cataract and Surprise trails consisted of repairing eroded trails by constructing water bars and check dams as well as clearing fallen trees which were blocking trail access.

Thanks to the following for their continued dedication in providing good access to our wilderness trails:

Volunteers: Jonathan Kriegel, Peter Welles, Becky Hopkins, Neil Tenbrook, Virgil Robinson, Karen Fox, Judith McGreery, Connie Tussel, Bill Adamson, Kurt Steuer, Frank Gutmann, Tyson Schaeffer, Bob Portman, Mary Schwartz, Doug Schwartz, Cyndi Koop, and Currie Craven.

Friends of Eagles Nest Wilderness will be working on July 27 and Aug. 23 on the Mesa Cortina trail.

If you enjoy our trails, please consider “putting something back” by volunteering to help.

Eagles Nest trails are some of the most used trails in the country and only through the efforts of volunteers are these trails maintained for hikers’ enjoyment.

Refer to for further information, or contact Jonathan Kriegel at (970) 262-2399 or Cyndi Koop at (970) 468-6699.

Thanks to all who “make a difference” by contributing time, effort and contributions to the effort of maintaining our wilderness trails.
