Join Trails 2000 for Stop ’N Lop Trailwork on the lower Colorado Trail on Wednesday, October 11, from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. Crews will work on lopping overgrown oak brush along the corridor to clear the trail and improve the line of sight and overall experience for all trail users. No experience is necessary for trailwork, and Trails 2000 will provide the necessary instruction and safety tool talk, all tools, gloves, and water and snacks for volunteers.
Stop ’N Lop Trailwork offers a great option for the community to give back to trails, whether they’re out on the trail and want to stop by and work for 30 minutes or an hour, or if they can commit to the entire work time. Volunteers can simply stop along the way while riding, running, hiking or walking the dog on the lower Colorado Trail, and Trails 2000 crews will have additional loppers available at the work site for folks to help out. Those volunteers wanting to give more time should meet at the work truck at 4:00 p.m. at the lower Colorado Trail trailhead and work until 6:30 p.m. Parking is limited, and Trails 2000 encourages volunteers to ride bikes or carpool to the trailhead, located three miles up Junction Creek Road in Durango.
