CMTRA is currently working closely with the US Forest Service, Pikes Peak District, to maintain trails in our area. We use grant money obtained from the State OHV sticker fund to aid in our mission of trail maintenance and protection. Some of the grant money is turned over to the Forest Service for maintenance of motorized trails. We also have trail maintenance days where club members do trail maintenance. Here is our planned trail work for this year:
The Captain Jacks multi-use trail system. Starting this summer we will work with the Forest Service to develop an accurate map of all existing trails in this system. We then plan to place signs or replace broken signs on the trails that designate a trail as motorized or not. This summer we hope to open some new motorized trails in the Mt. Rosa area. Some of this will require building new trails. We will also continue to do trail maintenance, such as building retaining walls and clearing down fallen trees from the trails.
The 717 multi-use trail system near Woodland Park sustained considerable burn damage in the Hayman fire this past summer. We have been actively discussing with the US Forest Service plans for rebuilding those trails lost to the fire. Currently, the burn area is closed to the public, but when opened we plan to be involved in the rebuilding of these trails. We also will continue to do trail work on the open 717 trails.
We plan to have a schedule of trail maintenance days by April or May this year. Please check back to this website for those dates. We can use your help!
