Family Trail Day on the Fairy Trail

Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 30th - it is Family Trail Day out on the Fairy Trail! Join Friends of the Dillon Ranger District and help beautify the Fairy Trail in Silverthorne!

This is a really fun morning event for you to do with your kids (9a - 11:30a with lunch at the end!). Not only are you volunteering with a great organization here in Summit County, but you are getting outside and giving back to our amazing community. I can't think of a better way to start off your weekend!

FDRD has put together a family friendly craft activity for the kiddos to take part in, while adults mingle with like-minded folks and get their hands dirty with some trail work. Kids are also welcome to help with the maintenance efforts! After the work/crafts we will all join back together at noon for some lunch. This project is perfect for families with young children (ages 6-12) who want to give back!

Please sign up everyone who is attending in your family so we can get a sense of how many people will be attending.

We will be working from 9-11:30. We will have a volunteer job for all, light to moderate work. Afterwards, participants are welcome to stay for lunch and mingle while kids do crafts! ITEMS TO BRING AND WEAR Our mountain weather can change from warm and dry to cold and wet in a hurry. Please be prepared with the following:

  • Work or hiking boots (NO sandals, flip flops or minimalist shoes)
