Hard work makes for navigable trail

Dear Editor:

The Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association would like to sincerely thank the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and the U.S. Forest Service for going the last mile for cutting and maintaining the Arbaney-Kittle Trail.

To date, the infamous Sloane Peak traverse has been an elusive and treacherous section of this long and epic trail that connects Kobe Park above Lenado with Holland Hills near Basalt. Numerous people have gotten lost, have had to portage their bicycles or have had to simply turn around because of this primitive and dangerous section.

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers organized, fed, transported and provided tools for more than a dozen volunteers to this remote and difficult area for a two-day project in late July. It is now a more clear and manageable path that beckons those still in search of a daylong adventure.
