Colorado Addicted Trailbuilders Society

Yesterday the Colorado Addicted Trailbuilders Society teamed up with a group of employees from Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Fort Collins Site to help repair parts of one of the local hiking trails at Lory State Park in Colorado. Due to heavy user traffic and weather over the last few years the trail had begun to deteriorate and fall apart so the crew worked on securing the critical edge and tread of the trail. Thanks to the awesome crew at HPE we were able to make major improvements to the trail that will last for centuries, reinforcing the edge with rock walls and adding much needed water bars to help with water removal. We are glad that we had the opportunity work with them and hope to make this a yearly occurrence.

The CATS meandered back over to Mariana butte for the first time in over a year to help clean the trail and repair a few parts of the trail along the big Thompson river which was damaged by the snow over the winter. Other than some minor weed removal we were very excited to see that the trail was holding up well and that the traffic on the trail was helping to pack the trail into place. Next week we are off to Lory State Park for our first corporate sponsored trailbuild, can’t wait to get back on the trail.

A couple of us CATS worked with OMBC and LCNR to construct a 40 foot rockwall and a number of drainage features on the Sawmill Trail at Horestooth Mountain park yesterday. We finished everything they had planned with a couple of hours to spare (Amazing what can be accomplished when there are tons of great rocks just uphill from the work area !) ... See MoreSee Less

A little out of the ordinary event for us yesterday as we staged a number of tool use videos while working on some trail repair features at Pineridge reservoir in Fort Collins

While not strictly a CATS event, two of our members (Brandon and Dean) joined WRV as crew leaders on a great 3-day backpacking weekend in the Brainard lake - Pawnee pass area doing what we like to do best (working on trail of course !)
