Sign Up for Trail-building Fundamentals Workshop on Feb. 1

Little snow is on the ground making volunteers anxious to get outside and work in the dirt.

On Thursday, February 1, join Tyler Albers, from Trails and Wilderness on the Pagosa Ranger District, as he leads a discussion on the functioning components of trails. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the why and how of volunteer trail work.

The workshop will be held at the District Ranger Office from 10:00am to 1:00pm. Planned topics include:

  • Forest Service trail management
  • Evolution of trails
  • Modern trail design and trail features

Please bring a brown bag lunch and we can continue to discuss topics through the lunch hour.

Space is limited; send an email to to confirm your space. Only reserve a space if you are going to attend.
