Big strides made on Droste trail work

Dear Editor:

On behalf of Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, town of Snowmass Village, and the city of Aspen, I would like to thank all the volunteers who came out to build trail with Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers on the Snowmass connection to the newly purchased Droste property.

Over 40 people came out to lend a hand. An amazing amount of work was accomplished and now over half of the 2-mile trail is open for use. The views are spectacular so grab your bike, hiking shoes or horse and get out there! With all the work that was accomplished we should be able to open the whole trail within a week.

Thanks to Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers for making this project a reality in less than a month’s notice and also to the Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association, Snowmass Club, Village Market, Blazing Adventures, and Bonnie’s for making this project such a success. Check for more information and news of when the trail is open.
