Volunteers Sought to Build a Trail at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado’s renowned trail-building group, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), is seeking help for a two-day project that will help build a trail to the top of Cheyenne Mountain through Cheyenne Mountain State Park, which is located on Highway 115.  The VOC project is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8 and Sunday, Sept. 9.

Volunteers are invited to help build the next portion of the trail, named the Dixon Trail after the homesteader who hiked to his home on the top of the mountain, which will eventually access the top of Cheyenne Mountain.

During the last few years, volunteers began work on the first portion of the trail.  Volunteers who help with this two-day project will be treated to an evening at Cheyenne Mountain State Park that includes free dinner and a live band on Saturday, Sept. 8 and free camping. Breakfast will be served on Sunday morning and pack lunches will be provided.

To be a part of building this historic trail, please register at the VOC website, www.voc.org. Click on “Volunteer” at the top of the home page, then go to “Project Calendar” and scroll down to Cheyenne Mountain State Park Trail Construction to obtain more information and to register.
