This summer the PWV Restoration Committee worked mainly on the North Fork Trail but also two days on the Hewlett Gulch Trail. We held 13 public workdays, 3 days of PWV only training, 2 training days with the Larimer Country Youth Conservation Corps and 8 workdays with the Larimer County Youth Conservation Corps trail crew. One of our public days we had the Rocky Mountain Conservancy trail crews and some of their staff and volunteers join us. This combined effort allowed PWV to build 1 mile of new trail through some very difficult terrain. We built a number of rock walls, moved a lot of dirt and built the abutments for a log stringer bridge over the river. The terrain we built this new trail through was very challenging. In some areas rock retaining walls were required to hold the trail in place on the side of the hill.
154 individuals, 44 PWV members and 117 of the general public plus 10 from the Larimer Country Youth Conservation Corps provided the labor. This amounted to 475 workdays for a total of 4,275 hours. We also ate a lot of food and had some fun along the way.
