Uncompahgre Chapter Update

September 5, 2012
The Uncompahgre Chapter continues to pursue trail opportunities when they present themselves.  Earlier this year chapter members met with City of Montrose officials to visit the Cerro Summit area, east of Montrose.  The city owns 110 acres on the summit, and there has been some discussion about developing trails on the property.  A section of the old rail bed traverses the property and the area has been developed for winter recreation – mostly a sledding hill.  There is also some BLM property east of the City property that has some trail potential.  A proposal to develop a variety of trails including standard cross country trails and gravity fed trails with features is being developed.  COPMOBA will make a presentation to the City’s Parks Advisory Board on Sept. 26th regarding this project.
                Trail maintenance is planned for Cerise Park on Sunday, Oct. 14th.  Work on the pump track and mtn. bike trails is planned.  COPMOBA will host the trail day, and provide pizza for volunteers after the trail work.  Wear sturdy footwear, and bring work gloves, snacks and water.  Meet at the picnic shelter next to Stocker Field off of Chipeta Drive at 8:30 AM.  Please contact Bill at trlgpa@skybeam.com if interested in helping with either of these projects.
