Sold out: Buffalo Creek, Little Scraggy Trail Building, September 12
This summer’s trail work has been a huge success. We completed about 2.0 miles of new trail through some fairly rugged terrain. Since we all want more and better trails, we’ll be back at it again on September 12th. All work will be done by hand which involves the use of simple hand tools. There’s no experience needed. We provide the tools and guidance so come join us for a day or for the weekend and camp with us.
Directions: From C-470 and Highway 285 (Hampden Ave.) interchange, take Hwy. 285 south, into the mountains, for 20 miles to Pine Junction. NOTE: the Morrison Police love to set-up radar on 285 between Hwy. 8 and Parmalee Gulch Road so obey the 45 mph speed limit. Turn left at the light at Pine Junction onto County Road 126. Follow CR 126 through the towns of Pine and Buffalo Creek for about 17 miles to Kelsey Campground. Kelsey Campground is south of Forest Road 550 (also known as Wellington Lake road) so do not turn right onto 550 Road. Stay on CR 126 for about another 3 miles past 550 Road. There will be plenty of parking available in the campground so drive on in.
We will have coffee and a light breakfast available in the morning. After a quick meeting at 9:00 am, we’ll hike into the work site. It’s about a 2 mile hike each way. We’ll work till about 2:00 pm and then your free to go for a ride or just relax. We’ll fire up the grills for our post work, afternoon BBQ so please register so we can plan accordingly and contact you if things should change. And many thanks to Denver Beer Company for providing the ice cold adult beverages.
Dress in sturdy work clothes including boots, long pants (recommended), work gloves, hat and sunglasses. Remember to bring water, your own lunch, sunscreen and a pack to carry them in. A hydration pack works great for this purpose. Since the campground will be closed for the season, there will NOT be any water available. We will have the campground all to ourselves so feel free to camp out for the weekend.So come on out help us continue our work on Little Scraggy trail. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Keith Clarke at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll see you on the September 12th.
