About the Project Roxborough State Park carries the esteemed designation of a Colorado Natural Area and a National Natural Landmark for good reason. The 4,000-acre park, nestled against the foothills south of Littleton, is comprised of stunning red rock formations, unique plant communities and a wide range of wildlife. The approximately 100,000 annual visitors can take in all of Roxborough’s beauty from a variety of different access trails.
The construction of this trail will provide access to a scenic viewing area and waterfall that is currently inaccessible. Further, the specific section of trail will eventually serve as an access point to a larger route, which will create a loop for users to enjoy expansive views of the park and the Front Range.
What will I be doing? Volunteers will construct more than 2,600 feet of basic trail, which begins at the road and passes through a small meadow. You’ll build a short bridge to cross a drainage, and you’ll build rock steps and retaining walls along the trail. This project is perfect for all levels of fitness and abilities, and its convenient Front Range location makes for a quiet escape from the sounds of the city.
You will be working outside all day so come prepared with sunscreen, water, snacks, sunglasses and a hat! Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Tools and gloves will be provided for you to use. Lunch and snacks will also be provided!
