There’s a saying in the CATS organization, if we ever have over 12 volunteers on one project, then our founder and trail director would eat his hat. Well thanks to the 15 volunteers we had last week at Boise we were able to finally witness bob eat his hat (and in his words “it was delicious”).
Today’s build at the Boise Ave project went great, thanks to some determined volunteers we were able to finish off the last few causeways and were able to finish filling in the crusher section. Depending on our volunteer count next project, we should be able to finish the Boise Ave Project on the next build day (in June).
Next week we are off to our next trail site at oxbow east (off of Rossum and Eisenhower) to begin prepping the site for the national trails day event June 2nd. If you are free then please join us next week.
See you on the trail.

Though the rain delayed us a bit, 9 CATS still challenged the elements and joined up at the Boise project to get more beautiful new trail built on Saturday May 12. With little hesitation the crew went straight to work filling in more crush for the previously build trail sections and building a few causeways next to the river.
Join us next Thursday as we push to finish up the last few sections of the trail, all are welcome and the more the merrier: trailcats.org/volunteer/
With one of the largest turn outs this year (15 awesome volunteers), the CATS attacked the Boise Ave trail project on Thursday in an attempt to get back on schedule after a prior rain cancellation. Two crews worked tirelessly to build some beautiful new trail, one focusing on a stone causeway next to the river and the second focusing on filling in already cut trail with crush. Overall great time and can’t wait until next weeks build.
Some members of CATS and associates attended a unique rock handling class at Eldorado Canyon State Park on Saturday May 5th. The all-day class involved learning how to split stone with two methods and extensive rigging of ropes, cables, grip hoist, and blocks in trees to lift heavy stone and place uphill if necessary. WRV hosted the event and provided at great lunch. Cat, Connie, Bob, Scott, Mick and Kendra attended.
Thursday’s weather forecast is shaping up to be great, so be sure that you join us this week as we continue work on the Boise Ave Project 3-7:30pm. We are in need of as many volunteers as we can this week especially as we are a bit behind due to the last week’s rain cancelation.
Volunteers Needed - June 2nd 9am to 12pm. The CATS and the City of Loveland Natural Areas will be co-hosting a National Trails Day trailbuild on property across from oxbow natural area in Loveland, Co.
