Georgia Pass/Glacier Peak Restoration
Sat-Sun, Sep 8-9

Straddle the Continental Divide, Say Hi to Hikers on the Colorado Trail and Help Restore Eroding Alpine Roads

Accessible by even a Honda Civic and only 1.5 hours from Denver, our base camp below Georgia Pass is a gorgeous mountain escape for a fall weekend and a great chance to experience the alpine environment in a very easy way. From camp we will carpool up to the work site just a mile or two away but above tree line with spectacular views that go on forever!

This beautiful and popular area sees use from off-road vehicles and outdoor enthusiasts experiencing the CDT and Colorado Trails. While much of the recreation is on sustainable trails and roads there are some places where users, often unknowingly, are causing immense degradation to extremely fragile ecosystems. This project will focus on the closure and restoration of a spur road that is heavily eroding, braiding, and unraveling the native alpine flora. We will camp out Fri & Sat (unless you can only make it for one day) and enjoy amazing food veteran cooks.

We are excited to have the help and partnership of the Friends of Dillon Ranger District and the US Forest Service to accomplish this project. FRIDAY night arrival highly encouraged.
