CCMR works with the Forest Service, BLM and local groups on projects that benefit the entire community of trail enthusiasts:

• Clearing overgrown brush and fallen trees

• Repairing trail damage from floods and fires

• Trail improvements including minor relocations

• Erosion control

A significant amount of work goes on in the Spring when members carry chainsaws onto the adopted trails to clear them of downfall - removing scores of large tree trunks and countless number of branches. Any remaining snowdrifts are also cleared.

SCHEDULED VOLUNTEER WORKDAYS

Downed trees and snowbanks create situations where recreationists are tempted to go off-trail. 

 

All season, CCMR members visually inspect and evaluate maintenance needs while out riding Central Colorado trails. 

 

Riders stop to fix problems encountered on rides (minor blowdowns, safety hazards or obstructions, trash, etc.).  Members report problems requiring more assistance to land managers.

ONGOING MAINTENANCE WHILE RIDING

Maintaining the nearly 89 miles of adopted trails is a major and resource-intensive commitment.  Volunteers survey these trails every Spring to clear them of downfall and to identify and map sections for follow-up repair or maintenance.

1.  The motorized Continental Divide Trail (CDT) from Old Monarch Pass to HWY 50

2.  Rainbow Trail from Silver Creek to Oak Creek - all 56 miles in the Salida Ranger District

3.  Poplar Gulch

4. Sundgren Sunset Loop (part of the 54 acre Big Bend Park in Salida)

5. Greens Creek Trail

6. The DudBob Trail
