Volunteers sought for Sky Mountain Park trail work

Staff report

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers, in partnership with Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, Aspen Parks and Open Space, Town of Snowmass Village and the Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association will coordinate a project to improve Skyline Ridge Trail.

Beginning June 19, the project is seeking volunteers every Tuesday evening through July 24 to help reroute a section of trail at Sky Mountain Park.

Volunteer efforts will reroute the Skyline Ridge Trail out of a wet meadow and onto a more sustainable location and alignment.

Sky Mountain Park, which experiences a high volume of visitors each season, must be rerouted to eliminate further damage and erosion of the trail.

Dedicated to promoting stewardship of our public lands, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers has committed to engage the community in trail and conservation projects from Aspen to Parachute for more than 20 years.

All are invited to join this project.

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers provides the tools, resources and trained crew leaders to ensure a positive experience.

Dinner will be included after and volunteers are eligible to win several prizes.

For those hoping to help but seeking a less physical way to get involved, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers also is looking for people to help with recruiting, committees and more.
