Strawberry-Hi Lonesome Trail Improvements
July 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - July 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Headwaters Trails Alliance is partnering with Andy Miller and Hi Lonesome Huts Inc. to provide this fun project. This project is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the trail and to have a chance to stay at the Hi Lonesome Hut for FREE! This will be a fun backcountry experience with living comforts of the hut. (solar generated electricity, a stove, hot and cold running water, and indoor toilet) There is also camping available at the hut if preferred.
We will hike 2.5 miles through the beautiful Arapaho National Forest to the hut on Friday afternoon (tools and equipment will be staged at the work site. We will start work at 8am from the hut on Saturday and work through Sunday. There will be several different trail improvement opportunities for volunteers to work on including a turnpike installment, vegetation removal along the trail, and trail tread improvements on a new constructed stretch of trail near the hut.
The High Lonesome Hut is located east of US 40 between Fraser and Tabernash, near Meadow Creek Reservoir, about 65 miles west of Denver and 15 minutes west of Winter Park. From US Hwy 40, drive County Road 83 to CR 84 to the Trailhead Parking area (4 miles). The trail to the hut is 2.5 miles long.
Hiking: 2.5 miles (hike to the hut without tools)
Lifting: moderate to heavy
