    Trail Ambassador

    While out hiking, members wear Forest Service Volunteer T-Shirts and Badges. When meeting other hikers they offer friendly greeting and, provide information, minor assistance, or a reminder concerning rules, if needed.


    The group has adopted the trail from the Junco Lake Cabin to Columbine Lake. This generally involves two work days in early summer with tasks for every level of ambition.

    Cabin Hosts

    The US Forest Service maintains two trail-head cabins in the county, at Monarch Lake and Junco Lake, both serving the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Members staff the Junco Lake Cabin on summer weekends, and the Monarch Lake Cabin three days a week. This involves learning the trails and area served, and the applicable rules and regulations. You also get to meet a lot of interesting people.

    Registration Boxes

    To provide the Forest Service with needed information on trail usage the group collects the data from regiatration boxes at critical trail heads. The group also builds, installs, and maintains the boxes.

    Time Reporting

    The Forest Services uses our volunteer hour data in grant requests and reports.

    Other fun things include:

    Group hikes and backpack trips.

    Good company and delicious potlucks. The group's biannual meetings are treats for the palate and social instincts.
