Ice Cave Creek Project, June 8

This project is sponsored by the Rampart Range Wildlands Project of the Colorado Mountain Club. The project entails a 0.4 mile reroute of trail in the Ice Cave Creek drainage above Palmer Lake. Volunteers will have a short, but steep hike up to the work site. Volunteers must bring work clothes & gloves, water, snacks, sunscreen, and hat.The existing trail up Ice Cave Creek is hazardous and eroding. It cannot be repaired in place, so we will be realigning the lower portion of the trail so it stays higher on the ridge and joins the Palmer Reservoir trail between the reservoirs. This is a rare chance to build new trail, and a rare trail opportunity in northern El Paso County. It is also a BIG project,so we need lots of volunteers and crew leaders. The result will be better access into the Ice Cave Creek drainage and opportunities for loop hikes from Palmer Lake.This project will be completed through a partnership with Town of Palmer Lake, CMC Denver Group, CMC Pikes Peak Group, Friends of the Peak and Friends of Monument Preserve.If you are a CMC member, it is recommended that you log on to register.

Once the project is full, we will not be able to accommodate any additional volunteers. This is for safety's sake - to retain a safe crew leader to volunteer ratio. Please note that we will be working on the trail on July 13, August 10 and September 14. You may sign up for those projects on the CMC calendar.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
