National Trails Day Volunteer Event

Join us for this collaborative trail stewardship project hosted by Larimer County Department of Natural Resources (LCDNR) and the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas (NA) which seeks to engage the community in the repair and construction of publicly accessible trails. Volunteers will learn trail design, construction, and maintenance techniques and better understand how LCDNR and NA work together to provide quality visitor experiences.

Volunteers will be engaged in a variety of trail tasks including manicuring a newly constructed trail and filling in eroded trail with specially blended soils. Lunch, volunteer gifts, and a chance to win fabulous prizes will be available to those who stay for the duration of this event!

Here are some important things to know before signing up:
1) This event is for community members ages 12+ and no dogs are allowed at this event.

2) All participants must sign up through and will be prompted to sign a waiver (yay for less paper at the event!)

3) Meeting and sign-in location will be at Sunrise Day Use Area at Horsetooth Reservoir, ¼ mile north from Rotary Park on the west (water) side of the highway. Signage will be provided to direct participants. A day parking pass will be provided.

4) Hiking of approximately one mile in each direction will be required carrying trail hand tools and supplies for the day.


 More specifics will be provided after registration.
