Experienced bikers and hikers needed for Yampa Valley Trail mapping

The Yampa Valley Trail stretches 100 miles from Dinosaur National Monument.

CRAIG –Experienced bikers and hikers are wanted to help map out the Yampa Valley Trail on Saturday, Oct 6.

Anyone interested in helping map the trail should meet at the City Market parking lot at 8 a.m. according to Dinosaur 100 trail race organizer Mike Mathisen. Groups will be assigned sections of the trail to cover. The goal is to cover 100 miles of the trail and the information collected will be given to the Bureau of Land Management to create a new map.

The trail stretches across Northwest Colorado from Dinosaur National Monument in western Moffat County.

“This day is not for inexperienced hikers or bikers,” Mathisen said. “It will be a day of searching for way points and then riding or hiking to next way point.  The trail is not in great shape, so an inexperienced person will not have fun on it. It is a  day to ’embrace the suck’ of building and endurance race course.”

Food, drinks and supplies will be provided.
