Trail Mix

Volunteers are needed Saturday to help Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) improve the Crater Lake and West Maroon trails in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area.

These spectacular trails receive an incredible 400 to 600 users per day. Both closely follow West Maroon Creek, a pristine stream that feeds Maroon Lake. The trail work will begin on the section of the Crater Lake Trail closest to the lake and continue up the West Maroon Trail toward West Maroon Pass.

RFOV will provide the tools, materials, leadership, and some great rewards including a dinner at the end of the day. To volunteer or for more information, call RFOV at 927-8241, e-mail, or visit

RFOV is now in its 11th season of public projects. RFOV has helped land managers and other organizations create and maintain dozens of trails and natural areas from Aspen to Rifle since 1995.

On Sunday the Roaring Fork Audubon Society will will travel to Palisade as guests of master banders Debbie and Steve Bourcicus as they continue their research into the four species of hummers that commonly occur in Western Colorado. Meet at 6:30 a.m. at the west end of the Glenwood Springs Mall (near Staples). Trip leader is Linda Vidal. She can be reached at 704-9950.

Bring lunch. All field trips are suitable for beginners and guests are always welcome.
