We extend our most sincere compliments to all the volunteers that came out July 13th, 2019 in Buffalo Creek Recreation Area (BCRA) to re-build the lower hairpin turn, improve the next turn’s sustainability & re-direct drainage at the upper boardwalk from the adjacent hill shoulder on Nice Kitty Trail.  The trail development review by the S. Platte Ranger District has been outstanding!

On August 17th, 2019 the Trailblazers will again be partnering with the S. Platte Ranger District in the BCRA of the Pike National Forest. We will be re-aligning the extreme lower segment of Green Mountain Trail to correct fall-line erosion & improve sustainability.  We’ll be hiking in from the Colorado Trail Trailhead just below Meadows Group Campground.  Please review a bit of detail below for our 8/17/2019 Trail Day.
