Gearing up for National Trails Day

Submitted PhotoVolunteers with the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers hike along the Sunnyside Trail near Aspen. The RFOV will be doing work to the trail on Saturday as part of National Trails Day.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Saturday marks another National Trails Day and the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers have some big ambitions for projects on two trails in the Roaring Fork Valley. And, as the name states, they are looking for as many volunteers as they can to lend a hand.

Outdoor enthusiasts have two options Saturday. Local’s are invited to join the nonprofit for a day of maintenance work at either the Sunnyside Trail just west of Aspen, or the Boy Scout and Forest Hollow Trails above Glenwood Springs. RFOV is partnering with the U.S. Forest Service, Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, and Aspen Cycling Club for the Sunnyside project, and the Glenwood Springs project partners include U.S. Forest Service, Summit Canyon Mountaineering and the new Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association.

Volunteers will receive training, breakfast snacks, free dinner, T-shirts and the chance at prizes donated by local businesses.
