New Stuff and Inspiration
Our trails hate COVID-19 too.
When the coronavirus hit Colorado, we were all instructed to stay at home. So naturally, everyone went out. Far out.
Our mountains and trails became a priceless resource for people trying to safely escape the stress of the lockdown. But in doing so, this new flood of foot traffic caused damage. More people meant more trash, more stomped plants, widened trails, and a whole lot more dog poop.
Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado needed to do something. Fast. So, in order to remind these hikers to mind their manners on the trails, we came up with a simple truth, “You are what you leave behind.” Can’t miss trailhead posters were installed across the state.
