Young Gulch – continuing

Another visit to construct more rock stuff and trail. Same scenarios as previous treks. Camping or Hiking in is the direct method. Go to www.wlrv.org for all the details as usual. Also, register here for CATS managers to see who is attending from CATS. We are into two months on this project - jumps to 1 Sep. Be prepared for cooler weather also.

Young Gulch – Number 3 – CATS Rock Work

New updates and things. This weekend is a dual event for CATers and others. Here is what is happening. You can go deep into the middle at the field camp and stay there all weekend with others or hike in about 2- 2.5 miles to work on two creek crossings that need extensive rock work. CATS members will have to hike in our tools for the day. We can stash - but must hike them out on Sunday evening.…

Young Gulch Back Country or Hike in

This is the second Young Gulch event this season. May 11-12 most of CATS will have missed that one. Some CATS will miss this one too as there is an excellent TA class being taught out at LSP. So for the rest of CATS - please feel free to go out there and back pack into the base camp or hike in from the regular parking lot - about 3.5 - 4 miles now. There is a ton of work to do this year as they…

LORY STATE PARK- CHANGED DATES

Yes - it has been five glorious years up there at LSP in the back woods camping and whacking trail. Not like they run out of work for us, but there is always something to be done up there. I listed Friday night as that will be our staging day and time at the maintenance shed area. We always meet up here and load up, leave behind personal vehicles and head up to our evening campsite. All hands -…

Round Mountain – final push

We are on the other end of the trail and working new trail piece and two stone staircases. Parking is in Viestenz-Smith Mtn park. Orange vests for all working on the staircases. We hope to finish up this week as we are behind in other projects. Don't just read this - hit the sign up button. Thanks - see all those that have been coming out and maybe some new faces!  We may go to 8 pm if needed to…

Round Mountain – Trail and staircases

We should be able to finish up with this weekly whack, though it is hard to predict sometimes. Some can start parking in the VS Mtn Park parking area closer to the RT 34 as the work will be there at the staircases and up in the woods just across the road.  Be careful crossing RT 34 as they speed here a bit.      

Round Mountain ? – staircase and new trail

Due to multiple cancellations we are behind with this project - but no worries...We work hard and finish with good quality product. We should be on to new trail, stairs and some talus trail work that will be different for some of you. Hopefully, we are working two days this week and Wednesday is our target day (before this evening event). We can make up time with combining weekends and some extra…

Willow Bend Day

CATS is partnering with the City of Loveland to assist with the delivery of crusher fines at Willow Bend. We are working there already and this public joint effort will help accelerate our closure of this wonderful trail and move onto another project. We need all hands on deck!  Crew Leaders will be helpful as well as some pick up trucks. Should be a fun event similar to the North end of Rossum…
