Trail Cleanup Event:
Pine Needle Mountaineering is proud to partner with Trails 2000 and Conservation Colorado to host a trail work/clean-up effort in the Horse Gulch area. Our focus on this day will be the new Drop Over trail segment that connects the road to Cuchillo. Trail clean-up starts at 9am to 12pm, volunteers meet at the Horse Gulch trailhead. No experience is necessary to volunteer, and Trails 2000 will provide the necessary instruction and tools.
When: Saturday, May 19, 2018, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.; please come for as much or as little time as your can.
Where/Directions: Horse Gulch Trails, meet at the intersection of the Meadow and Horse Gulch Road; from Main Avenue in Durango, take College Drive to 8th Avenue and turn right. Take a left at 3rd Street (by Horse Gulch Health Campus, before the Sonic) and park in the Horse Gulch trailhead parking lot. From the trailhead, ride, run or hike up the gravel road/trail to the intersection with Meadow Loop where you will meet the crew leaders for instruction.
What to wear: Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes or boots, long pants, shirt (long or short sleeved), sun hat, sunscreen, and bring a water bottle and rain jacket (optional). Tools, instruction, water and snacks will be provided.
