DUST 2 has organized a "Dig Where You Ride“ trail-building service project in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service from Aug. 13 to Aug. 16 and is seeking at least 10 volunteers.
The project will install critical switchbacks on the middle portion of the motorized Treasure Trail at Windy Pass. The project will be led by Tyler Albers, Trails and Wilderness, San Juan National Forest and Pagosa Ranger District.
Volunteers can expect to hike 3 miles to the work site. The camp/staging area will be set up at the Windy Pass meadow. Volunteers do not have to camp to join trail work days.
The purpose of this project is to restore and re-route the portion of the trail that goes through Windy Pass to allow for better flow and continuity to the Treasure Mountain Trail.
The trail crew will provide meals and water for a daily fee of $10 per person to those who request them during sign up.
