Trail Mainteance

Working to Preserve and Maintain Trails

Members volunteer their time and expertise to further CCMR's mission to preserve and maintain Central Colorado trails. We collaborate with local, state and federal government agencies to identify and coordinate trail volunteer projects throughout Central Colorado.

In fostering public land stewardship, CCMR trail events provide volunteers the opportunity to give back to the trails they love, meet new people, and have a great time doing it!

CCMR’s trail maintenance goals strive to improve the function, safety, and overall recreation experience for multi-use visitors and preserve the trails for future generations.

Member Workdays

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.

Ongoing Maintenance Activities

CCMR members visually inspect and evaluate maintenance needs while riding Central Colorado trails. Riders stop to fix minor problems encountered on rides (minor blowdowns, safety hazards or obstructions, trash, etc.). Members report problems requiring assistance to land managers.
