Volunteers add half-mile trail to Floyd Hill Open Space

In about six hours, the hillside that looked out over the Front Range was completely transformed. The grass and rocks were moved away, and a new trail was put in their place.

On Saturday, more than 70 volunteers descended on Floyd Hill Open Space to build a half mile of new trail running up the ridge from the meadow.

“I’m amazed over the years at how much work (volunteers) can get done in a day,” said George Rasmussen, one of Saturday’s volunteers. “… We are creating a trail that will be used for decades.”
