Valley View Hospital Foundation: Tough Enough to Wear Pink Thursday July 19

Do you use the Arbaney-Kittle Trail? Come Help, Work & Camp!

Help RFOV continue our work to improve and sustain the Arbaney-Kittle Trail that runs from Kobey Park to Basalt. 
DATE: Saturday & Sunday, July 21 & 22

TIME: 7:30 a.m. Saturday to 5 p.m. Sunday

Meals Provided! (RFOV will provide all meals from Saturday breakfast through Sunday lunch!)

The trail section they will be working on is very remote and access is limited to the 5 mile long and rough 4 wheel drive road to Triangle Peak. Due to the remoteness of the site, they have scheduled this as a two day project with camping available Friday and Saturday night.  RFOV will provide shuttles for gear and volunteers, and provide all the meals!

Volunteers can come for one day only as well!

Please sign-up online, by email or by phone 970-927-8241.
