rail Building Workshops happening in your area in the coming months.
Jefferson County Open Space, in partnership with Eldorado Canyon State Park, Boulder Climbing Community, the Access Fund and the American Alpine Club will be offering monthly trail building workshops to help develop advanced trail building techniques for interested individuals.
To kick things off, we'll be offering the first of these workshops on Saturday, May 18th from 9am until 12pm at the Jefferson County Open Space office at 700 Jefferson County Parkway, Suite 100, Golden.

The first workshop will focus on trail layout and design and will provide a solid foundation for future workshops. Individuals interested in attending this first workshop are asked to register through the Jefferson County Open Space Trails Co-op page.

There you will find an electronic form that has been set-up for quick & easy registration. Below is a list of planned workshops. Most of these workshops will be hands on in the field training and will provide interested individuals with a great opportunity to improve their existing skills and learn new ones.

More deets to follow, but the Eldo Griphoist rig (with some new trickery ) will be in operation.

We'll be working on a trail out of the streamside parking lot. No hiking. Just learning and playing.
