We extend our most sincere compliments to all the volunteers that came out May 18th, 2019 to Colorado Trail Sec. 2 & Buffalo Burn Trails in Buffalo Creek Recreation Area (BCRA) to re-build the upper-most hairpin turn & improve trail impingement just below the turn on Nice Kitty TrailThe trail development review by the S. Platte Ranger District has been outstanding!

On July 13th, 2019 the Trailblazers will again be partnering with the S. Platte Ranger District in the BCRA of the Pike National Forest.  We will be performing additional maintenance on the upper section of Nice Kitty Trail developing a feature to improve drainage away from the upper boardwalk & correcting entrenchment at several locations as time permits.  We’ll be hiking down from the intersection of Buffalo Burn Trail & Colorado Trail Sec. 2.  Please review a bit of detail below for our 7/13/2019 Trail Day.
