Trail Maintenance | Habitat Restoration | Resource Conservation


When it comes to Conservation, CMC is committed to on-the-ground protection and improvement of Public Lands throughout the state. Our two 2019 Stewardship Crews worked across Colorado for 20 weeks to assist the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Managment maintain trails and restore natural resource areas. The crews also hosted volunteer events and partnered with numerous non-profits to assist in trail design and project managment. Their hard work resulted in:

  • 45 miles of trail inventoried and maintained

  • 1,513 downed trees removed

  • 400 erosion control features installed & maintained

  • Supervised 9 miles of new trail construction in Salida and Buena Vista



On April 22, 2019, the Colorado Mountain Club recieved the National USFS Volunteer & Service Award for its work in the Salida and Leadville ranger districts. Read More Here>>
