Volunteers help enhance visitor experience in the NCA

By  | 

Grand Junction, Colo. – More than 50 volunteers worked over the weekend with the Bureau Land of Management in the McInnis Canyon National Conservation Area to better the experience for hikers by improving the trails.

Many visitors to the Devil’s Canyon area of the NCA reported a confusing maze of user-created trails, twisting in various directions that was distracting from the natural landscape.

Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado gathered on Saturday and Sunday with shovels and other tools to remove and rehabilitate social trails.

The BLM is asking visitors to remain on established trails because rehabilitation is expensive and time consuming. Hikers have gotten lost on these confusing trails.
