We extend our most sincere compliments to all the volunteers that came out for the Epic at Buffalo Creek last September to assist S. Platte Ranger District in the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area (BCRA) on lower western segment of Green Mountain Trail adjusting alignments and armoring drops for sustainability, developing drains for water diversion and reclaiming badly eroded trail segments.  Feedback from the S. Platte Ranger District and trail users on the results has been outstanding!

On May 19th, 2018 the Trailblazers will again be partnering with the S. Platte Ranger District in the BCRA of the Pike National Forest.  We will be cleaning up several hinge points and reinforcing a boardwalk entry / exit on the mid & lower sections of Nice Kitty Trail.  Access is very good and close to the staging area!  Please review a bit of detail below for our 5/19/2018 Trail Day.

Directions . . .

 From Denver take U.S. 285 south to County Highway 126, Pine Junction, then south on 126.  Proceed through Pine Grove to Buffalo Creek (where the North Fork of the S. Platte River crosses the road). About ½ mile south of the North Fork of the S. Platte River crossing County Highway 126, turn west (right) onto Buffalo Creek Rd. (FS Rd. 543).  A primitive lot with portable toilet is located approximately ¼ mi. west on FS 543 from Highway 126.  However, we suggest driving west on FS Rd. 543 approximately 1 mi. from Highway 126 in the proximity of the first metal gate on FS 543.  The trail building staging area is just past the metal gate on the left denoted by the “Parking” on the map.

  • Look for the Trailblazers’ tent canopies on the left just past the gate.
  • Plan your travel to arrive around 8:00 am to get fueled up and meet everyone.

Volunteers need to bring . . .

  • Enthusiasm and energized muscles to help us build these great trails for our community!
  • Wear comfortable work clothes . . . long pants, long sleeve shirt, and boots!
  • Bring a lunch, snacks and lots of water for during the day while on trail!

Don’t forget work gloves, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and jacket, just in case!
