To promote trail stewardship, develop and maintain sustainable trails, and promote positive trail interactions among all trail users in the scenic Mancos Valley.
After a long hard winter your local trails need some love. Join Mancos Trails Group on Fathers Day, Sunday June 16 for a family work day on the West Mancos Trail. A MTG scouting party went out on Tuesday and found the trail is mostly dry, but there are still a few wet, slick spots. There are two ¾ mile sections that need brushing and several drainage features that need cleaning. MTG began work on this section of trail in 2017. When brushing is complete, it will be the first time in at least a decade that this trail corridor will be clear from Transfer Campground to Golconda!
We will meet at 8:30am at the West Mancos Trailhead just east of the Transfer Campground. Look for the Mancos Trails banner. Depending on the number of volunteers, we’ll divide into groups. Maximum round trip mileage for the day will be about 4 ½, but shorter options may be available.
Don’t worry, we will take rest breaks for food and water as needed and there is no obligation to complete a certain amount of work. We are required to have fun, socialize, and enjoy a day in the woods with like minded folks and improvement our trails along the way!
We’ll plan on being back at the trailhead between 1 and 2PM for burgers and refreshments.
The weather forecast for our location, in the vicinity of Transfer Campground, calls for a high of 70 with a chance of showers in the afternoon. Please come prepared!
