Take pledge to ‘give back’ on National Trails Day

PEAK TO PEAK Taking place on the first Saturday in June, National Trails Day is a day of public events aimed at advocacy and trail service. Thousands of hikers, bikers, rowers, horseback riders, trail clubs, federal and local agencies, land trusts, and businesses come together in partnership to advocate for, maintain and clean up public lands and trails. The American Hiking Society asks everyone to pledge to give back to

trails and public lands on National Trails Day, June 1. “We saw how our public lands suffered during the government shutdown. Together, we’ll give back to the places we love and set the world record for the most people improving trails in a single day. Be a part of history by pledging to clean up a trail or volunteering at a trail service project on National Trails Day,” it says. By pledging to improve a trail

you’ll join a nation-wide movement to set a world record and (more importantly) sustain America’s remarkable trails system. With help, we can preserve beloved trails for future generations. Plus, everyone who commits to improving trails will be entered to win weekly giveaways of outdoor gear. Rocky Mountain Conservancy and Rocky Mountain National Park celebrate National Trails Day by hosting a volunteer project on Cub Lake Trail, June 1, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Help the Conservancy send-off the Conservation Corps by joining them for a volunteer trails project. After the volunteer work, the Conservancy will host a National Trails Day Barbecue for all participants. Visit rmconservancy. org/national-trails-day-2019 to learn more and RSVP. You can also join Wildlands Restoration Volunteers with its Beaver Brook Trail Maintenance/Stewardship Project, 27661 Genesee Dr., on June 1, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The historic and very popular Beaver Brook Trail begins just north of Genesee and winds northeast to Lookout Mountain, near Golden. Volunteers will be addressing erosion problems on the trail by adding water bars and steps. Volunteers will be closing braided trails and helping to define the trail tread to reduce future erosion. Maintenance of the trail tread will help ensure proper drainage and function of this popular trail. Visit wlrv.org to learn more. While its location is conveniently located near the Denver-metro area, the trail offers hikers a remote backcountry feel. In fact, this year’s project site requires a three mile hike in. An RSVP is required by e-mailing nate@wlrv.org. Visit americanhiking.org/nationaltrails-day to learn more.

Boulder County Wildfire Awareness Month May is Wildfire Awareness Month in Boulder County. The goal of Wildfire Awareness Month is to encourage homeowners to become better prepared for future wildfires by performing high priority mitigation measures during the month of May. To help document all the mitigation work being performed in May, Boulder County and Wildfire Partners are holding a photo contest. Residents are asked to share photos of their work to reduce wildfire risk, and encourage friends and neighbors to prepare too! Three homeowners have a chance to win $1000.

Amtrak Winter Park Express sets records this season FRONT RANGE/GRAND COUNTY The Amtrak Winter Park Express trains set records for the service, including the most riders ever, in the 2019 season. Amtrak and Winter Park Resort leaders thank guests for choosing Amtrak to avoid traffic and to enjoy new features both aboard the train and at the resort named last year “Best in North America”. More than 19,200 tickets were purchased for 32 round-trips for the season that ended last month, an increase of www.mmacmonthly.com

about 7 percent from the 2018 season and 8 percent from the inaugural season in 2017. More than 52,000 guests have taken the service in the partnership between Amtrak and the resort. For the first time, Winter Park Express to customers had snack and beverage service using a Superliner Sightseer Lounge Car with windows that start at the floor level and wrap into the ceiling of the railcar. Once they arrived, customers enjoyed more than $30 million in capital investments at

the resort that included a new 10-person gondola, upgraded snowmaking and a new base-area plaza. Another new lift is coming next season. “Nowhere else in North America can you take a train from a major metropolitan city to the slopes of a worldclass ski resort and we look forward to working with our good friends at Amtrak and the other railroads to continue to evolve this service for the future,” Winter Park Vice President of Operations C.A. Lane said.

Chain Station

Backroads is the new album from Chain Station

Band travels ‘Backroads’ of bluegrass ESTES PARK s winter in the mountains prepares for its annual retreat, seasoned, highenergy string band Chain Station ushers in the spring touring season with the release of Backroads, an album of original bluegrass songs inspired by the highways, landscapes and residents of the band’s Colorado home. The full length record is available to the public for the first time, May 3, and party celebrating its release is at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, May 4. The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern in Estes Park, where the band has been playing since its inception, hosts a mountain release party, presented by Odell Brewing Company, May 11 at 7 p.m. Cover is $10 at the door. High-lonesome harmonies. Fiery fretwork. Acoustic instruments. Those ingredients of traditional bluegrass music are all present, tucked into an eleven-song track list that not only nods to Chain Station’s appreciation for the old-time heroes of the genre, but also pushes the band into new territory. After all, Backroads isn’t your grandfather’s roots music. Produced by international banjo champion Kyle Tuttle, it’s a modern album rooted in creative arrangements and inspired performances—an album that will please newgrass fans and traditional listeners alike. “We met around a campfire,” Co-founder Alex Thoele said, “and we’ve been putting that loose, organic vibe onstage ever since. We call it mountain music, because that’s where we formed. That’s where we live. And that’s what we do.” The band’s third studio recording, Backroads also serves as an introduction to Chain Station’s newest member, Chris “C-Bob” Elliot, whose banjo

and baritone harmonies help thicken the group’s sound. With Jon Pickett and Jarett Mason rounding out the lineup, Chain Station’s members take their time on several of Backroads’ tracks, stretching songs like the title track past the five-minute mark. It’s a move that not only highlights the musical chemistry between all four members, but also shines a light on the primal energy of their live shows. Having spent years supporting bands like Del McCoury Band, The Devil Makes Three, Hot Buttered Rum, and dozens of others, Chain Station has developed a stage show that’s energizing and electrifying. Like its name suggests, Backroads could serve as an appropriate soundtrack for a road trip. “When we were recording,” Thoele said, “we were thinking, is this something we’d want to drive through a mountain pass while listening to? So many of our fans listen to our albums while driving, so we kept that in mind and it influenced our creative process.” Maybe that’s why the songs on Backroads often mention the mountains, wind, and other natural hallmarks of a joyride through the American West. Other songs, including the positive-minded “Half Full,” deliver messages of optimism. A love letter to both their home and their genre, Backroads is Chain Station at their very best: inspired, expanded, and eager to hit the highway. Learn more about the band and how to stream, download or otherwise get your hands on Backroads at chainstationmountainmusic.com and facebook.com/ChainStation. Support the band and pre-order the album in various forms, including on vinyl, or sign-up for other perks at chainstationbackroads. com before May 8 at 10 a.m.

FRONT RANGE

With Pete KJ as the guide and the Denver area as a base camp, the splendor of Colorado’s Front Range is yours to enjoy one day—or even just a few hours—at a time. Base Camp Denver offers 101 of the best of these great hiking destinations. It was released in April. The new book covers history, geology, flora and fauna for each hike; suggests best hikes for each season, and where to enjoy spring wildflowers and fall foliage; offers ratings from 1-5 for trail conditions, difficulty, suitability for children and more; and detailed driving directions to trailheads and information about elevation, hiking time, parking and restrooms. The book also includes regional maps showing all trails in each chapter; a route map for each hike; best hikes for dogs, kids, and teens; hikes that offer solitude or plenty of company; hikes by interest; as well as how to prepare and what to take. The author hiked each of the 101 featured routes within the last two years. He describes each in detail and provides historical context and descriptive narrative about the geology, flora, and fauna likely to be encountered. Because the eastern slope of the Colorado Rockies experiences all four seasons, the author provides guidance as to what hikes are best for each time of year.

Burro races return to Clear Creek towns IDAHO SPRINGS Celebrate the state animal and the only sport indigenous to Colorado during Clear Creek Pack Burro Race Weekend featuring events in Georgetown, May 25, and Idaho Springs, May 26. In a typical burro race, which commemorate early miners and their burros, a runRUNNING ner and a burro complete a course with the runner leading a burro carrying a 33-pound pack saddle, pick, gold pan and shovel. The entry fee for each event is $60, or $100 for both, but it’s free—and fun—to watch. Burro racing has its roots in Colorado’s mining heritage. In the early days of the mining industry, miners would take burros through the mountains of Colorado in their search for gold. Because the burros were carrying supplies, the miners could not ride the animals, so they would walk, leading the donkey. The Georgetown Pack Burro Race, May 25, features an eight-mile route from Georgetown to Empire Pass and back. Vendors and live music is also featured. The entry fee is $60, but spectating is free.

Forest Service approves Eldora’s Jolly Jug expansion into Gilpin County GILPIN COUNTY The U.S. Forest Service has approved Eldora Mountain Resort’s request to expand the ski area on the Roosevelt National Forest, adding 62 acres of new terrain in an area known as the Jolly Jug. The project includes five new ski trails, amounting to approximately SKIING 27 acres of trails; 35 acres of tree and gladed skiing; a four or sixperson high-speed lift; and additional snow making capabilities. The decision is the culmination of five years of planning, environmental analysis, public involvement and stakeholder collaboration. In 2015, the Forest deferred approval of expansion outside the current Special Use Permit boundary and encouraged the ski area to work with the community to gain support and resolve objections. “Over the past two years, Eldora Mountain Resort worked collaboratively with key stakeholders to improve relationships, build community support for the proposed projects, and compromise on a plan that will satisfy both the ski area’s growth and economic objectives as well as the community’s environmental concerns,” said Forest Supervisor Monte Williams. These stakeholders included the Middle Boulder Creek Coalition, the Sierra Club’s Indian Peaks Chapter and Boulder County. Their effort resulted in a statement of principles document that was approved by the Boulder County Board of CommisPage 18

sioners in December 2017. Through the statement of principles, the parties agreed Eldora would not pursue the more controversial Placer and Moose Glades projects identified in its 2011 Master Development Plan. The parties also agreed on moving forward with expansion into the Jolly Jug terrain so long as the Jenny Creek Nordic Trail was relocated to avoid conflicts with new alpine ski trails. Eldora also met with the Gilpin County Board of Commissioners and its planning commission to obtain its support for the project. In March 2018, the ski area asked the Forest Service to reconsider expansion in the agreed-upon area, adjustment of the Special Use Permit boundary, and some trail realignment to compensate for the lift that wouldn’t be built under the agreement. The Forest has completed a supplemental information report that determined no further analysis is required and has issued a new record of decision. This decision will not be subject to the objection process. While the decision allows work to move forward, Eldora has not established its construction timeline. “Eldora is an important amenity to the local community and has been part of Boulder County’s recreation tradition for more than half a century,” Williams added. “This decision will provide expanded opportunities for the public to enjoy downhill skiing within an hour of Denver and will allow Eldora to compete and endure in the recreation industry into the future.”

Water

Rafting outfitters expect outstanding season on Clear Creek, Cache le Poudre rivers By Jeffrey V. Smith CLEAR CREEK/LARIMER COUNTIES Colorado is one of the most popular places in the country to experience a whitewater rafting adventure, and the Front Range region of Colorado offers two major whitewater rafting rivers—Clear Creek and Cache le Poudre rivers. Both are unique in their own ways and easy to reach, with companies offering trips lasting a few hours or all day. Clear Creek is one of the most exciting, most accessible commercially rafted rivers in the state. This year will be especially remarkable, according to local river guides, thanks to a state-wide recordsetting snowpack that has only begun to melt. All of it adds up to the potential for a better-than-usual season, and subsequent boost for the local economy. Located in a historic, mining valley along Interstate 70, Clear Creek is a steep, narrow, technical river that is both challenging and fun. Once on the water, the interstate goes unnoticed as paddlers drop through Clear Creek County’s scenery and history. Numerous companies provide professionally guided trips on the river and excursions offer Class I-V rapids from mid-May through July and sometimes into early-August during a normal season. There is hope the river will remain “raftable” even longer this year. “It’s going to be a great season for water flow, especially compared to last year. We had to shut it down about a month early last year,” Colorado Adventure Center Director of Operations Justin Ibarra said. “With the snowpack, we are anticipating a nice, long high-water season.” That buoyant outlook is also shared by other rafting operations. “I think it’s going to be an awesome season. A really good snowpack,” Liquid Descent Owner and Guide Alan Blado said. “We never quite know what could happen with the snowpack. It

could get really, really hot and we can have high water for a little bit. But really, I think most outfitters will be able to run Clear Creek into late August. I think people are excited to go rafting. A lot of locals that didn’t go last year are probably going to come this year. The economy is also really good, so people are traveling. I’m super stoked. I can’t wait.” Clear Creek is the steepest commercially rafted river in Colorado, meaning more rapids per mile and an overall more exciting ride. There is almost continuous whitewater along its entire run requiring more paddling and increasing the likelihood of participants getting wet—which is usually the goal. The river, and its outfitters, also feature mellow areas suitable for beginners and those looking for something a little less adrenalin-pumping. According to Blado, who has worked on the river since 2008, what makes Clear Creek “cool” is its uninterrupted whitewater and limited flat-water areas. “There are lots of rapids that are close together. Even the beginner trip, for a class two trip, it’s really splashy and fun and not a lot of flat water.” The best part of whitewater rafting is almost anyone can do it. While accidents do happen, the sport is considered safe and fun for people of nearly all ages and abilities. It is important to know a river trip’s intensity changes by time of year. A trip later in the season could be a leisurely ride through mild waters or, if early enough, a thrilling adventure through rapids. Once the decision is made on when to go, choosing a qualified, licensed outfitter offering trips that suit the appropriate skill level is the next step. State-certified

companies have all the expertise needed to lead their guest safely down the river and are accustomed to guiding trips for seasoned rafters and those who have never been on the water before. Most outfitters offer a variety of trips—from more family-friendly options that make wonderful experiences for children and first-timers to more extreme adventures for the seasoned veteran—which can be selected based on your experience level, fitness and desires for the trip. “The single most important influence on someone’s rafting experience is going to be the guide,” Blado said. “So, even if you have great facilities and great equipment and awesome busses, if you have a guide that is incompetent or not a good river runner, or also just kind of salty and not excited to be there… that is really what is going to the biggest influence on your trip.” Thankfully, there are many friendly, knowledgeable, well-equipped, licensed outfitters running on the Clear Creek and Cache La Poudre rivers. The Cache La Poudre River is northwest of Fort Collins and within 90 minutes of Denver and Estes Park. Named by French fur trappers, it has everything from mild to wild including deep canyons and clear waters. Not only does the Cache La Poudre offer great runs, but rafting here is unique since it is Colorado’s first and only federally designated National Wild and Scenic River. Rafters can observe world-class scenery and bighorn sheep, deer, eagles and other wildlife while enjoying Class II- IV stretches of whitewater. Several companies operate out of Estes Park, but river access is out of the area.
