Hay Park / Buzzard Basin Trail (Wilderness Restoration)

Hay Park/Buzzard Basin Trail Restoration
Friday, August 16 – Sunday, August 18 (start and finish time will be shared once the camping location is assessed)
Free and open to the public, registration required,

Project Description: Join us for two days of trail restoration work in the Hay Park area and Maroon Bells – Snowmass Wilderness. Volunteers will be camping at high elevation and working to relocate 1/2 mile of the multiple use Buzzard Basin trail out of the Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness Area. The trail used to be a road and is too wide and not conducive to foot traffic in parts. We’ll be building some steps to prevent erosion and keep water off the trail.

Directions: Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and Wilderness Workshop will provide  details on how to arrive at trailhead once a site visit is completed in late July.

Camping: You are welcome to join us for the whole weekend, just one day or one night. Because people may get off work at different times we’ll meet on Friday evening/night at the campsite and will have dinner waiting for you. Get there when you can and we’ll make sure to put out some signs to show you where to find us. We’ll work both Saturday and Sunday and should arrive back at the parking lot on Sunday around 5:00 p.m. or earlier.

What to bring: All your own backpacking gear including tent, sleeping bag and pad, warm clothes, headlamp, rain gear, closed toed shoes, sun protection and water bottles. You do not need to bring a stove or water filter. Please bring work gloves if you have them. Look for some tools at the trail head and and grab one on your way up. Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) will provide all food and trail gear.

Wilderness Workshop is partnering with Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and Roaring Fork Mountain Biking Association
