You’re invited to join Trails 2000 for our annual spring membership event to kick off the 2019 trail season: the Trails and Ales Party, on Monday, April 22, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Carver Brewing Company. Held on the annual recognition of Earth Day, this event gives all outdoor enthusiasts a chance to mix and mingle, learn more about how to get involved with Trails 2000, and give back to the trails in and around Durango. The event will feature live music from Space Between Shadows, a delicious spread of chili and salad, and a beer, glass of wine or root beer from Carvers to anyone who joins, renews or gives to Trails 2000.
Proceeds from the Trails and Ales Party directly support Trails 2000’s mission to plan, build, and maintain Durango’s trail network, educate trail users, and encourage connectivity on road, path, and trail. With over 300 miles of trails within 30 minutes of downtown, Durango is a trail mecca! Partnering with the City, County, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and private landowners, Trails 2000 and our cadre of volunteers contribute over 3,500 hours of trailwork on these lands. Trails 2000 believes that great trails build great communities and great communities build great trails. This is an event that strengthens both of those elements!
Stay tuned! As Trails 2000 gears up for the 2019 season, the organization will host a Trailwork Kickoff Party. More details will be announced here, and all weekend warriors, trail blazers, wanderers and trail lovers alike will be invited to come out for a fun work day to kick off the 2019 trail season. Details and volunteer sign up to be announced.
Trails 2000 hosts over 30 public trailwork parties on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the trail season, including the annual Colorado Trail (CT) Work Weekend in mid-June 2019. The fun-filled camping weekend includes work on Trails 2000’s adopted section of the CT, sections 28.2 and 28.3 from Champion Venture to Junction Creek, totaling 19.1 miles and the longest adopted section in the state. Trails 2000 will also host a work day and celebration on Saturday, September 28, in recognition of National Public Lands Day.
No experience is necessary to volunteer at trailwork, and Trails 2000 provides the necessary instruction and safety tool talk, all tools, gloves, and water and snacks for the entire crew. For more information on upcoming trail events, please visit our Trail Calendar.
We hope to see you at our Trails and Ales Party on April 22!
