Wilderness Trail Scouting

The Forest Service is planning major trail improvements in the Snowy and Sierra Madre Ranges this summer. In order for trail crews to be able to maximize efficiency, they need up-to-date information about where repairs are necessary, and where downed trees are obstructing trails.

That’s where we come in. COG is helping organize a Rapid Trails Assessment Program, in which volunteers will hike wilderness trails in the Snowies and note areas of need.

Teams of volunteers will hike out from several different trailheads on June 22. If you’re interested in leading one of the teams, or would like to hear more about the program, please come to an orientation meeting on June 4 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. (exact location TBA; it’ll be somewhere in Laramie). We’ll go over all the details and let you know where and when to show up on the 22nd.

If you’d like to participate on the 22nd, but can’t come to the meeting on June 4, please email us at so we can get you all the info you’ll need!
