Soda Springs Trailhead Improvements - May 30, 2015
The Soda Springs Trail begins off County Road LL56, about seven miles west of Villa Grove. It travels north along the creek before reaching Forest Service property but has fallen into disrepair and is in need of maintenance. Volunteers will work alongside trained crew leaders to rebuild creek crossings, construct switchbacks, improve the trail surface, build rock cairns, and improve the parking area to accommodate horse trailers. The project is funded by the Roundup Riders of the Rockies Heritage and Trails Foundation and supported by a partnership between ScSEED, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and the Bureau of Land Management.
