This year's Hardrock trail work is planned for Friday, July 3rd and
Monday July 6th. As has been our practice in past years, we're
working with the Ouray Trails group. We will not be doing trail work
on Handies Peak this year.
On Friday, meet at the Ouray Bear Creek Trailhead at 8 AM a few miles
up US 550 from Ouray, at the tunnel. The work will be on the Bear
Creek Trail, probably focused on the "washout area" about 3 miles up
On Monday, meet at 8 at AM at the Horse Thief Trail about one mile
east of Engineer Pass, high up. That day's work will focus on getting
trail construction materials down the Horse Thief Trail and working on
the high end of the trail. 4WD will be needed to get up to the start
and we hope to be able to set up vehicle pooling. More details will
be known at the July 3rd trail work day.
There is no need to reserve or register a place for the trail work
because we have no limit on the number of workers. Just show up on
Friday and Monday. There will be information updates, if needed, in
Silverton after the start of the course marking on June 27.
As usual, if you work BOTH trail days, you're eligible for one
additional 2010 Hardrock Lottery entry ticket.
If you have any questions, contact me or Rick Trujillo
) who is coordinating with the Ouray folks.
