Hay Park/Thomas Lakes Trail Restoration
Fri.-Sun., Aug. 17-19
Join us for two days of trail and restoration work on the Thomas Lakes Trail to Mount Sopris at the edge of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. The trail used to be a road and is too wide and not conducive to foot traffic in parts. About 2.5 miles from the trailhead, we’ll be building some steps to prevent erosion and keep water off the trail. We’ll be camping in a beautiful meadow with an Aspen grove and views of Mount Sopris about 1/8th of a mile off the trail. We’ll provide all the food and tools for trail work– just bring your personal items and backpacking gear (tent, sleeping bag, cutlery, water bottles, etc.). Look for distinct signs and flagging that will lead you to the camp site. View a map showing the parking lot/trailhead and our camping spot.
We’re partnering on this project with Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV), the Forest Service and the Roaring Fork Valley Horse Council.
