Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) will host a trail workday Saturday on the Scout and Forest Hollow trails in Glenwood Springs.

The 2.5-mile Scout Trail on the east side of Glenwood Springs is popular among hikers and mountain bikers, and the Forest Hollow Trail is a mountain biking favorite that contours the west end of the Glenwood Canyon before connecting with the Scout Trail above the city.

RFOV and its project partners will perform trail maintenance over the entire length of these trails. Volunteers will focus on correcting erosion problems, re-establishing trail width and trimming back encroaching vegetation.

RFOV and its project partners – the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association, National Forest Foundation and Summit Canyon Mountaineering – will provide the tools, materials, leadership, and some rewards, including a dinner, at the end of the day.

To volunteer, visit http://www.rfov.org, e-mail rfov@sopris.net, or call (970) 927-8241.

The Carbondale Environmental Board and Roaring Fork Conservancy for the Crystal River Cleanup will be held Saturday.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. at Sopris Park in Carbondale. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers are advised to dress appropriately by wearing long pants, layers, hats, sunscreen and gloves. Prizes will be awarded for the Best of Trash, Most Toxic, Most Useful, and Most Unusual Trash.
