8th Annual Lumpy Trails Day At Lumpy Ridge In RMNP
The Central Rockies Section of the AAC will be hosting a trail improvement day at Lumpy Ridge in Estes Park, Colorado. This project is in conjunction with the Access Fund ‘Adopt-A-Crag’ program. A full day is scheduled on Sunday, October 19th. Interested persons should register early by emailing event organizer Greg Sievers at email@example.com, or calling 970-586-4075. Only those registered will receive a free lunch at the work site and T-shirt.
The group will meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Estes Park Town Hall parking lot on MacGregor Ave (downtown next to the police dept. and behind the library) where coffee and donuts will be provided. National park staff will supply tools and transportation to the trailhead. Volunteers should bring gloves, plenty of water, dress appropriately and are encouraged to stay for the full day (but part day help is very welcome). All volunteers in attendance at 4 p.m. will be eligible for gifts and raffle items that are sure to please and thrill.
A good turnout will prove that ‘climbers’ are good stewards of the land and considerate users but also proactive about our interaction with one of this countries largest land management agencies. This year’s goals include work on the badly eroded “Batman Rock” approach trail. In 2005 this event won the Access Fund’s “Adopt-a-Crag of the year award.” Be part of this energetic proactive event and the beauty of splitter Lumpy granite.
