Event description

Description

The FRCS crew is returing to the Third Flatiron this fall to work on the descent trail. We look to add upon the success of last years project and build a sustainable trail off of the backside.

The work will entail extensive rock quarrying, transportation/highline rigging to the work sites, stone step construction, building retaining walls and closing social trails. Come prepared for a rewarding and physical day of work, wearing long pants and sturdy closed toe footwear. Don't forget water, a lunch and gear for the season's weather. Half days and custom schedules are welcome! If you are interested in bringing out a group please contact us about possibilities.

To find us, hike up the Bluebell Road to the Royal Arch trailhead, follow the trail for the Royal Arch for about .25 miles to the junction for the 1st & 2nd Flatiron trail. Follow this trail west to the clearly marked Third Flatiron Trail. Once on the Third Flatiron trail, follow it up through the Satellite Boulders and past the East Bench staying on the descent trail up through the talus. We'll be working between the East Bench and the backside of the Third.

Please feel free to email us with any questions at frcsbcc@gmail.com. Also, expect an email from one of us the days before the work day detailing any specifics. Please note, any volunteers under 18 years of age are required to have our waivers signed by a parent or guardian. We can send you PDF files ahead of time if you let us know. Thanks and see you out there!
