Lend a hand to Kannah Creek Trail’s restoration

Here’s the opportunity to spend the weekend outdoors, burning a few calories and enjoying one of western Colorado’s most-scenic hiking trails.

The Kannah Creek Trail, which takes off from the bottom of Land’s End Road on the south side of Grand Mesa and eventually ends at the top, needs a bit of TLC.

Years of use, ranging from horse riders to hikers, plus several years of runoff-caused erosion, have taken their toll on the popular trail.

Thanks to Williams Energy and the National Forest Foundation, the nonprofit group Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado is hosting two work weekends with capable leaders, plenty of food and hopefully lots of starry nights.

Bring your own camping gear.

Take a little, give back a little. Happy trails.
