    The 'Fat' Trail

    This post is mainly for people familiar with Clear Creek, specifically re. the incomplete 'Fat Trail'... (name gleaned from an old Denver Post article I found)

    Last fall I walked the trail up from it's terminus at the top of the Waldorf (Silver Plume) railroad grade. I made it past the undone work on the flume portion and into the nightmare timber blow-down.

    From what I saw, this trail has the potential to be a classic, and then some. I found a rusty tool stash, and saw evidence of the beginnings of work clearing through the downed trees - what I'm wondering is who, if anyone, is working on this (maybe just a name or contact?) as a local, I would be happy to contribute to this effort. That thing has the potential to be soooo badass! If any of this rings a bell with anyone, please reply or direct message me or whatever.

    I donít know whatever happened with those guys and why they never finished cleaning up the trail.
    I plan on cutting out the deadfall this summer. I think it is worth riding again.
