Volunteer Trail Work Day – Salt Creek Clean-Up Report
The June 9th Salt Creek Trail cleanup day hosted by the Rico Trails Alliance was a great success!
Turnout was excellent with seventeen volunteers, including two kids as well as Mike Contillo, who recently completed USFS chainsaw training. We successfully cleared 10 felled trees, lopped off branches (only the poking hazards), de-bermed lower angle sections of the trail and cleaned out existing water diversion features. The hoof prints have disappeared (for now) but some impressive bear prints remain in tact. The day finished with beverages and live music in the outdoor seating area of the Enterprise Bar & Grill.
Thank you everyone who made this possible!

We will be conducting post-winter clearing, cleaning, and repairs to the Salt Creek Trail and we need your help!
Please wear LONG PANTS, sturdy hiking or work boots (absolutely no open toed shoes or shorts permitted) and work gloves (if you have them). Training and tools will be provided. Don’t forget gear for inclement weather, water, and snacks!
We will meet at the bottom of Salt Creek/Ryman Trails on the east side of Highway 145 (5 miles south of Rico near the Montezuma/Dolores County Line). Those with low clearance vehicles should park near the Montelores Bridge on the west side of the highway and carefully cross the highway to meet us – look for the RTA tent!
