About

Come join us to celebrate National Trails Day at Dedisse Park!

Located just outside Evergreen, Dedisse Park protects the watershed and forest above Evergreen Lake. Despite the great natural beauty of this Denver Mountain Park the area is being heavily damaged by off trail use and erosion. The mess of unsanctioned trails that braids across the landscape is the root cause of this damage. In a huge multi-project effort volunteers will reverse this trend by closing damaged areas and helping create a single sustainable trail for people through the park. Once finished, the Park and everyone who enjoys it will be much better off. Volunteers will transplant, seed, install erosion control structures and build new sections of trail. There is a short hike in to the work areas from the trail head.

No experience with restoration or trail building is needed; we will have trained crew leaders to make sure you have a great project. See you out there!
