Young Gulch Trail – Make-Up Day
June 30, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
We got washed out last weekend and had to cancel one work day, and we want to finish this trail! So join us for this added one-day project working on a section nearer to the trailhead. We’ll be meeting at the trailhead at 8am, and please bring your own lunch. Great for newcomers and veterans alike!
The Young Gulch trail was a very popular destination in the Poudre River Watershed. It was closed after the High Park Fire burned through in 2012, and remained closed due to flood damage that fall and again in 2013. Much of the original trail with all its creek crossings is washed away. Now we have the opportunity to build a new trail: more fun and resilient, with less disturbance to the creek and the Cache La Poudre downstream.
We’ve constructed almost 5 miles of trail leaving about 1/2 mile in the middle and some more technically difficult to finish this year.
OMBA is very pleased to work in collaboration with the USFS, Wildlands Restoration Volunteers, Poudre Wilderness Volunteers, Larimer County Conservation Corps, Rocky Mountain Conservancy Conservation Corps, and CATS on this exciting multi-year effort.
