Junco Cabin - Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest

August 18, 2017, 5:00pm - August 20, 2017, 3:00pm

CDTC is partnering with Headwaters Trail Alliance to provide this project for Volunteers. Register at continentaldividetrail.org/volunteer to be placed on the roster. The Junco Cabin Trailhead is one of the busiest Trailheads in the district. It is conveniently located, easily accessible by vehicle, and provides great scenic views of the Divide. The project is approximately a third of a mile walk from the Trailhead with little to no elevation gain. Volunteers will be rebuilding a puncheon bridge that has degraded and is no longer structurally sound. Puncheon bridges are used to elevate the tread above wet areas where drainage is not feasible. Typically the walking surface is parallel to the direction of the trail and the support structures (sills) rest directly on the ground. After the puncheon bridge is rebuilt it will last many years! Some minor tread repair may also be completed along this section of the CDT. There is also a need to install CDT signs as reassurance markers along the trail. Volunteers will arrive on the 18th to set up camp, workdays will be the 19-20. This project will accommodate 10-15 volunteers. Elevation: 10,000 ft Hiking Distance: 1 mile
