SOUTH CAÑON TRAIL CONSTRUCTION

PROJECT BRIEF: 

South Cañon Trail Construction
2016

Freemont Adventure Recreation developed a plan to create 20+ miles of trail accessed from Cañon City. Partnering with the Bureau of Land Management, Freemont Adventure Recreation (FAR) received a trail construction grant from Colorado Parks and Wildlife to construct 7 miles of the trail system on BLM land near Ecology Park. To top it all off, we worked with and supervised the Mile High Youth Corps because nothing says fun like a bus load of kids with pulaskis. They did a great job.

South Canon City Trail Construction

WORKING MILE HIGH YOUTH CORPS

Singletrack Trails was contracted by FAR to supervise and work in partnership with the Mile High Youth Corps (MHYC) to complete 7 miles of new trail construction. This hybrid project entailed Singletrack Trails finalizing the trail alignment, operating machines to construct the trail, and supervising the MHYC crew during the finishing process. By leveraging Singletrack Trails to oversee the MHYC, FAR was able to accomplish more trail construction, spend less time overseeing the MHYC crew, and get a higher quality product on the ground with Singletrack Trails holding the MHYC crew to professional crew quality.
