The 2015 Epic at Buffalo Creek has Arrived!!!

The 2015 Epic at Buffalo Creek is focused on re-routing lower Morrison Creek Trail just up from it’s intersection with FS Rd. 543.  This section of trail has moved left, or right, many times over the past several years depending on the severity of seasonal rain events.  Our goal is to develop a new alignment that is sustainable on this section of Morrison Creek Trail and perform a bit of reclamation on the old alignment.  The hike up to the Project Area is very minimal providing relatively easy access.  VERY COOL!!!  Online Registration for the 2015 Epic at Buffalo Creek, September 18th-20th is available by Clicking Here!

We extend our compliments to all the volunteers and Jefferson County Open Space (JCOS) Staff that came out on May 13th, May 16th, June 20th and July 18th in support of our construction efforts widening turns / approaches from what were tighter switchbacks / turns (difficult to navigate) and clearing vegetation greatly improving accessflow and user interaction on lower Hummingbird Trail and the Reynolds to N. Fork Trail.   Feedback received from JCOS on the results have been outstanding!  To to visit the associated online photo galleries click here.

On October 4th, 2014  the Colorado Trailblazers was acknowledged by Jefferson County Open Space with a Special Achievement Award for a volunteer group at their Annual Volunteer Celebration.  Kudos to all our volunteers for their efforts in making this happen!!!

The 2014 Epic at Buffalo Creek was a great success!!!

Our thanks go out to all the volunteers, Groundwork Denver, 18th Judicial District Juvenile Diversion Counseling ProgramBrian Conty with Jefferson County Open Space, our Trail Crew Leaders and the Trailblazers’ Directors for their time and effort in planning and managing the weekend’s activities.  We accomplished some 2100 ft. of tread development on the north connection from Hummingbird Trail with the new Reynolds to North Fork Trail!  A big shout out to our Sponsors who stepped up to support this year’s Epic at Buffalo Creek:
