Volunteers improve, expand Crown trail system

The Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) organization is working on new hiking, biking and equestrian trails in the Crown area off Prince Creek Road near Carbondale, and the group is inviting participation from anyone in the area who has an interest in improving the trails in that area.

According to the RFOV website, the work projects began on the evening of July 25 and are to continue every Tuesday evening through Aug. 15, from about 4 p.m. until dusk.

“If you have a busy schedule, just show up whenever you can to the BLM (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which owns much of the land containing the trails network), parking lot, which is located 4.6 miles up Prince Creek Road” from its intersection with Highway 133 south of Carbondale, the website states. Dinner and drinks will be provided to volunteers doing the work.
