Lower Lower Plunge Re-Route #1
August 3, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
This is a great opportunity to dig, ride and dine in the beautiful Hunter Creek valley.
To accommodate increased usage by hikers and bikers through this multi-modal Aspen-area White River NF trail, RFMBA and RFOV are partnering with supervising land manager Pitkin County Open Space & Trails to build 0.6 miles of new trail, while decommissioning the lowest 0.3 miles of the existing trail.
Pre-registration is required for volunteers. Please sign up with Roaring Fork Volunteers at THIS LINK : SIGN UP HERE
Volunteers will work with crew leaders to build new trail segments through grassy meadows with appealing boulders, and through the edge of aspen forests. Trail building tools and directions on how to. use ’em will be provided.
Arrive as early as 4pm, and work with us until dusk when we’ll have dinner and drinks.
Check-in at the event tables near the Hunter Creek’s Senior/Handicap Parking Area before heading east to the project site.
PLEASE RIDE TO THE CHECK IN! Parking near the project is limited. Once you are pre-registered, please
- (1) bike from home if you live close enough in Aspen,
- (2) bike from the “BLM Hunter Creek Trailhead Parking Lot” off Hunter Creek Road.
There will be limited parking close to the project’s event tents and check-in table that will be located just uphill from the Hunter Creek Upper (Seniors and Handicap only) Trailhead Parking Lot.
If driving, please carpool with friends and family due to limited parking.
Biking to the event is highly recommended! If biking give yourself enough time to relish the rolling descent back down to home before full darkness, or bring some lights!
Three Tuesday evening dig sessions (4pm – 8pm) are planned for the Lower Plunge Re-route. So pick your date or come out for all three on August 3, 10, and 17.
