Two-day project aims to re-route and restore Little Mountain trails

SUMMIT COUNTY — A few more volunteers are needed to help give some of Breckenridge’s Little Mountain trail system some well-deserved TLC. A huge volunteer effort is set for July 23-24, when more than a hundred pairs of helping hands will re-route and restore eroded trail sections to ensure safe and sustainable routes for visitors. Additional volunteers are still needed.
The work runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day with check-in at the southeast end of the Stephen C West Ice Arena, along Boreas Pass Road. Volunteers can pre-register at www.voc.org or register on-site. The minimum age to participate is 14. Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and bring water. Free camping and food are provided for volunteers, and Saturday evening will include a celebration with a local band. Continue reading “Breckenridge: Help wanted on Little Mountain trail project”→
