Letter: New Red Hill trail

Celebrate Colorado Public Lands Day this Saturday by building new singletrack in Carbondale.

Help complete a reroute of the top portion of the Blue Ribbon trail on Red Hill (aka Mushroom Rock). Red Hill Council is leading the charge on this project, Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association coordinated the necessary environmental studies to achieve BLM approval, and Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers is coordinating volunteer efforts on the ground.

The new trail will meander through the shady pinyon pine and juniper forest with a dash of sage brush. Beginner trail volunteer workers are welcome.

In addition to the satisfaction of making a positive impact to the Roaring Fork Valley's awesome trail network, volunteers will earn a chance to win a brand new Cima TR-5 mountain bike from Ute City Cycles.   

So come on out and join other like-minded trail lovers for a great time as well as a free dinner and refreshments on Saturday, May 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Preregister at RFOV.org or call 970-927-8241.
