Hay Park Trail project set
July 28, 2009
CARBONDALE – The Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and U.S. Forest Service are seeking help with a maintenance project on the popular Hay Park Trail outside of Carbondale on Saturday, Aug. 1.
The 9-plus-mile trail runs from the base of Mt. Sopris to Capitol Creek, skirting the edge of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area.
Volunteers will help refurbish the trail about 2.5 miles in from the Capitol Creek Trailhead. Crews will work to repair and improve the trail as it passes through a series of stream crossings and boggy areas.
The work day will run from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. RFOV and its project partners – the Forest Service, Aspen Skiing Co.’s Environment Foundation and the National Forest Foundation- will provide tools, materials, leadership and dinner at the end of the day.
Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers promotes stewardship of public lands by organizing volunteer opportunities for trail work and conservation projects.
