    Box o Rox is gonna happen!

    Box o Rox is gonna happen!-2-5-10-005.jpg

    Just got off the phone with eric at BCLP and after a brief conversation they are very excited to have someone commit to adopting that section of trail. Specifically the lower bog section that tends to stay wet through the year. I am committed to give back more this year if it means getting out there with an Amoeba on my head!

    This is where the T.I.T.S. crew comes in and anybody else willing to join in. I know there are various other worthy trailwork days and weekends that alot of you already are involved with and that is great-please keep that up! But if anybody wants to extend that and join in on this section please post here and or PM me with name, email and contact info so i can have this on hand.

    There will be a trailbuilding workshop in the spring sometime, i will get those details out when i get them and pass them on. With enough people i think we can knock this out fairly quickly and help that area to recover.

    Work always to be followed by a night ride of course!!

    Kev -- Let's see about coordinating something with the social ride committee we're on -- it might be a good way to get lots of folks involved, etc etc. waddaya think?

    Absolutely! More the merrier! Maybe even coordinate with COMBA and utilize some of those tools! I know COMBA has a section already but with enough folks on a couple outings we could do alot with this section.

    Have received a couple pm's already thanks guys!

    I cant seem to find my pic of the original sign anybody?

    I'll present the tool request at the COMBA Board meeting Tuesday night -- unless, of course you want to show up and present it yourself? I, personally, would like to see the COMBA trailer there, etc etc.

    I would love to but next week is gonna be tight as it is. Trying to get ready to go to canada for 10 days. I will get in touch with Jason unless there is someone else i should talk to. As far as the Trailer goes, only place it could go would be the Rooney lot and pack up tools from there. I would be down for bringing my grill and cooking up some post work food and then head out a night ride!


    Found it by the way!

    good on ya', kevin...



    fwiw, i think we could likely get gate access from lakewood and park the trailer in the dirt across the overpass/bridge like we did for national trails day.

    just let nancy know how COMBA might best assist w/ your grassroots efforts.

    and may just go where no one's been.

    Was kinda thinking the same thing ... like the low-liers in BCLP, only narrower


    Although something with that much structure seems awfully tame for BOR...

    What that section needs is some good ol Appalachian Trail armoring.

    Appalachan Trail Armoring(Burnt MTn 04/08)

    Appalachan Trail armoring( Burnt Mtn 04/08)

    a rigid goat on Burnt

    But I think what really needs to happen is a couple of switchbacks through the valley on a more sustainable grade. Some boardwalk(Skinnies) could definitely be used.

    I'm down PBR...Let me know when the scoping happens for reroutes..I want in on the whole process.

    Yeppers -- me three -- Then we all can discuss in what way we (COMBA) can support this effort.

    Okay, dumb ?

    So, I grew up here, have ridden GM, DR and MW for 15 years, but I don't know what trail is "Box O' Rocks"? I don't see it named on the GM trail map. Just curious?

    I think it comes up the northwest side of the mountain from the concrete bike path. I only know that from looking at the map on the Lakewood, Colo site.
