Join the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers on September 13, at the Arbaney-Kittle Trail near Basalt. The trail follows an historic ranching road/pack trail that climbs 2,000 feet off the valley floor to the ridgeline separating the Roaring Fork and Fryingpan River Valleys and then continues for another nine miles to connect into other trails and old roads near Aspen. Volunteers will tackle two priorities. The first is trail maintenance on the first three miles up from the trailhead, and work to define a 1/2 mile stretch of the trail at Sloanes Peak where folks are getting lost.

This will be the third and final RFOV project to finish constructing the new Wulfsohn Trail above the Glenwood Meadows Shopping Center on September 27. In 2006 and 2007, volunteers completed about two-thirds of this new 2-plus-mile-long trail on newly acquired City of Glenwood Springs Open Space. This year we’ll construct about 1/3 of a mile of new trail to finish the access from the west and Midland Avenue, construct a short 800′ connecting trail to the east above the Community Center, and reconstruct 300′ of trail through a silty/bog-when-wet area using gravel. Volunteer.
