More than 50 volunteers help prepare Transfer Trail for opening

SILT — More than 50 volunteers from motorized access groups such as High Country 4 Wheelers, White River Trail Runners, and Flat Toppers Snowmobile Club pitched in Saturday, May 18, to ready the Transfer Trail for its annual seasonal opening.

Volunteers filled holes in the road with gravel, cleared brush and downed logs and conducted other maintenance for the annual “Open the Trail Day” north of Glenwood Springs. Volunteers worked two miles of the road on Bureau of Land Management Land and another two miles on National Forest System land.

“The volunteers have been filling the ruts and holes in the road with large gravel for the past three years, and it has dramatically reduced the amount of annual maintenance we’ve had to do,” said BLM Outdoor Recreation Specialist Greg Wolfgang. “We greatly appreciate their willingness to donate their Saturday to ensure the Transfer Trail is better for all users.”
