We’re a week away and still in need of LOADS of volunteers for Roaring Creek Camp & Build Weekend June 24-25! ⛺️⚒

We have a HUGE opportunity to help restore the Roaring Creek trail in the Poudre Canyon after it was destroyed by the Cameron Peak fire in 2020. We’ll be working with the USFS this summer and fall to hopefully have the trail open in October. We’re kicking off with a weekend of Dig Days June 24-25.
 
  • There will be work for all ability and fitness levels!
  • You can come up for the day or camping is available Friday and Saturday nights–sleep under the stars!
  • OMBA & USFS will provide dinner (and beer!) Saturday night, and breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings
  • The views are inspiring and the creek is raging!
  • Be proud to come together as a community to re-establish this destination
 
📅 Here is the preliminary weekend itinerary:

NOTES: Camping for tents, small trailers, and vans. Cabins are not operational. There are no showers, so bring your solar showers, baby wipes, or enjoy the scent of forest and dirt on your self. Bring your own lunch, snacks, and water. OMBA will bring a few water jugs, but it is unclear if potable water is available at Arrowhead. Pack layers for the weather, 🦟spray, ☀️sunscreen.
 
We NEED you. There is work for everybody, you can volunteer for just one day or two, camp Friday and/or Saturday night, OMBA will feed you breakfast and dinner, AND you can experience the creek while it’s raging down the mountain, an AHHmazing view, and a lifetime of boasting “I helped build this.”
 

Sign up here to volunteer for the Roaring Creek Camp & Build Weekend! 

We know it’s going to be a blast, and we’ll be telling stories for years to come! Happy Trails.
