Hey all YES the Jenny Creek work/ trail cleanup day weekend is happening!!! 8/6-7 the Boulder Ranger District is gonna meet us there Saturday morning. Sorry this wasn't put out earlier though it's been on the calendar for a while. I haven't made this before so I'm not familiar with the details yet of the meeting place. I am meeting with Joel from BRD on Monday to sign the trail agreement and work out the details he wants. I will post more info as I get it, but whoever is interested in participating should just plan on Saturday 8/6 to meet near the trailhead at 8:30 and be prepared for the day or weekend. I will post more Monday evening and discuss it at the meeting Wednesday. I really appreciate all the help we can get, Thank you!!!
Mostly wooded with a burn area. Last year we cleaned up camp sites and rebuilt fire rings and had a nice lunch by a stream. May need to fold a mirror in once or twice to keep a tree from doing it. I don't recall any difficult sections. It is current labeled impassable due to a snow drift encountered early July further in towards the lake. I feel like this crew will bash through anything in the way!
Jenny Creek Trail is approximately 3.5 miles long and can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on your pace. The trail is run one way from waypoint 1 to waypoint 11. The trail begins in the forest and weaves you up to the Jenny Creek crossing. After the crossing, you will end up passing...
UPDATE: Hey everyone, yes we are on for tomorrow with the Boulder Ranger District for our trail maintenance day!
Here are the details from Mike, (who's elbow deep in an 80 front axle right now).
WHAT - Jenny Creek Trail Workday. We collaborate with the Boulder Ranger district to do general trail maintenance, post and cable repair, signage, campsite cleanup, illegal route management, and many other things. This is one of our adopt-a-trails that we have done a lot of work on to keep open and this is our opportunity to work with the Ranger District to continue to do so.
MEETING PLACE - We'll meet the ranger right at the turn off for Rollins Pass Rd. at HWY 119. Exact location is here: https://goo.gl/maps/crXaFfmB8MN36wPt6
Let's plan on meeting at 8:30AM and we'll meet the ranger, cover the essentials and get started. Ideally we'll be rolling out by 9:00am. Stay in touch with the group on FRS channel 22 and HAM 146.460
Bring plenty of water and a lunch and plenty of snacks to stay energized and eat as you go. It will be manual labor so have your work gloves, wear some boots, bring a few trash bags, and some basic hand tools (like a shovel maybe) if you have them. We will be doing trash pickup along the trail as well as any other repair, signage, or trail maintenance that the rangers would like to get done.
As always, bring rain gear, sun screen, and again plenty of water.
