Trail Improvement Project

Goal of Trail Improvement Project
Improve the existing trails in Dawson Ranch so that they are: sustainable, safe to use, and add value to the entire area.  Ultimately, we will likely extend the trail system.
 
Project Status (as of July 10, 2019)
The Improvement Project is complete.  All trails have been repaired consistent with the Trail Design Standard and they are sustainable. No trails encroach on private property.  Trail Stewards will monitor the trails and determine when to conduct a Maintenance Work Day. The next workday is scheduled for September 21, 2019.

Roles: 
  1. Trail Stewards - one resident per trail section to review and take ownership for the quality of each section. Issues to be relayed to the Trails Subcommittee Chair for action.
  2. Trail Hands - residents improve and maintain the trails on the third Saturday per month starting at 9:00 AM (Trail Work Saturday). Meet at Greenhorn Dr. & Tanner Pkwy. Contact: Mike Gromowski  (463Greenhorn@gmail.com)

Liability Waivers - need both City and HOA releases read and signed so that volunteers can do trail work
Approach – City and Residents Partnership
Cost and work/labor were shared between Canon City, Dawson Ranch HOA, and other Residents. Residents clear the paths (weeds, rocks), repair tread surface, and monitor the quality of the trails (see link above to Trail Hand terminology).
