Town to sky stairway opens on Nature Trail, connecting Durango to Fort Lewis College

You’re invited to join Trails 2000 for the official grand opening of Project Sky Steps on Tuesday, June 27, at 5:00 p.m. (add to GoogleCal, iCal/Outlook). Partnering with the City of Durango and Fort Lewis College, Trails 2000 and its cadre of volunteers completed the stairway, which creates a town connect from Durango to the Fort Lewis College campus, home of the Skyhawks. The stairway extends the Nature Trail steps and now includes over 500 steps and gains over 250 feet in elevation.

Attendees of the grand opening should arrive promptly at 5:00 p.m. at the bottom of the Nature Trail for an official ribbon cutting, followed by a hike up the stairs, surprise entertainment along the way, and finish at the top with snacks and cold beverages, courtesy of Trails 2000.

“We are excited to officially open the Sky Steps which provide access to a wonderful walking route, commute to the college, and training stairway right in town,” said Mary Monroe Brown, executive director of Trails 2000. “Providing connections around town are essential for a thriving community, and the vision of Trails 2000’s Sky Steps creates this necessary and wonderful link in Durango.”

The project officially kicked off in April 2017 and was built entirely by Trails 2000 volunteers and crews. Several local organizations and businesses volunteered with Trails 2000 to sponsor trailwork days.

According to Trails 2000 Trail Crew Lead Emma Millar, “We are so thankful for the fantastic support from the community and our local partners, in particular the City and Fort Lewis College. Their help was imperative to the success of the project, and it was great to work together to complete the project: a true community effort.”

Durango’s Sky Steps are amongst various urban stairs that have been long recognized as fitness and tourist destinations, including the Manitou Incline near Colorado Springs, known as one of the most popular and challenging hikes in the area, and the iconic Santa Monica Stairs in Los Angeles.

Join us for the Grand Opening of Sky Steps!

Dirt Drive: Give To Our Trails Today

Give in June knowing your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar

If you use the trails in Durango, you know there is no fee to entry. From the great rides in Horse Gulch and Twin Buttes, to the scenic hikes on Skyline or Animas Mountain, to the high country adventures on Hermosa Creek or the Colorado Trail, and so much more, we are lucky to live and play in a town where access to trails and outdoor recreation is right out our front door.

Trails 2000 is happy to be with you every step of the way as your local non profit trails organization, making the connection between your ride or hike and how the trails are built and maintained. Trails 2000 plans, builds and maintains the area trails on City Open Space, County, Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, Fort Lewis College, and private lands, creating a network of trail connections that provide over 300 miles of trails within 30 minutes of town.

Tom and Wendy Barney.

It’s the perfect time to join the many Durango locals that are Trails 2000 members and help drive our efforts to build and maintain our trails. This June, a generous donor has offered to contribute $5,000 if we match this amount with another $5,000. Please join our Dirt Drive Crowdfunding Campaign during the month of June to celebrate our work on the Colorado Trail. Trails 2000 adopts the longest section of the Colorado Trail in the entire state; from replacing Gudy’s Bench, clearing more than 75 downed trees from Champion Venture to town, and hosting our annual Colorado Trail Work Weekend, June 23-25. The Colorado Trail is a gem to our community.

The matching grant was contributed by Wendy and Tom Barney. The Barney’s are longtime Trails 2000 supporters and believe in the power of Trails 2000 and its cadre of volunteers to improve our community through trails and trail connections. Getting kids outside and keeping our community healthy by connecting to trails is something both Wendy and Tom are passionate about.

Wendy is a real estate associate at Sotheby’s and Tom, former CEO of Osprey Packs for the past 15 years, is now consulting with local CEOs and start-ups interested in seeing their passions through to the bottom line. Tom serves as vice chair on the Colorado 14’ers board of directors and is well aware of the trails backlog in the state of Colorado.

“I’ve been using the wonderful trails in and around Durango since moving here 16 years ago,” said Tom. “We’re so happy to have a non profit that makes access to our public lands their mission and does it so successfully. This challenge grant is a great opportunity for Wendy and me to give back and to inspire others to donate to Trails 2000.”

Wendy and Tom Barney.

“Wendy and Tom are friends of Trails 2000. They understand the connection to the outdoors and the positive economic impact trails provide our community,” said Trails 2000 Executive Director Mary Monroe Brown. “This challenge grant is an opportunity for us to reach the hundreds of trail users who aren’t current members but are big trail users. Perhaps they are not aware that Trails 2000 partners with the City, County, BLM, Forest Service and local land managers to plan, build and maintain the local trails, no matter the land ownership, so we can all have access to these vast and wonderful trail experiences.”

Access to the challenge grant can be found via the social fundraising platform site: Crowdrise.

By donating through the Dirt Drive today, you’ll know your donation was matched dollar-for-dollar. Please help us meet our goals and then hop on that bike, lace up your shoes or put the lease on your pup knowing your contribution is making a difference for Durango’s trails.

Welcome Christina Rinderle to Board of Directors

June 2, 2017

Trails 2000 is pleased to announce Christina Rinderle has joined the Trails 2000 board of directors. Christina is a long-time Durango resident and most recently served eight years on the City Council and two terms as mayor. Currently, she wears many hats, including co-owner of Durango Land and Homes Real Estate Brokerage, investor in La Plata Economic Development Alliance, among other roles. When she’s not hard at work making a difference in our community, she can be found exploring the trails in Horse Gulch – be it running, biking or hiking – and elsewhere across the Southwest.

Christina currently serves on the board with Daryl Crites, John Baxter and Steve Schwartz, along with Executive Director Mary Monroe Brown to assist with the strategic vision and goals of Trails 2000.

We were lucky enough to sit down with Christina and hear about her experiences, passion for our trails, the organization and Durango, and her excitement in joining the Trails 2000 Board of Directors. Read on:

Horse Gulch.

[Trails 2000] Thanks for sitting down with us today, Christina! Tell us a little about yourself.
​[Christina Rinderle] Thank you for having me! I grew up in Indiana, but always had a love for the west. I first visited Durango in the summer of 1998 ​with a group of friends and this town, the people, and the trails captured my heart. A year later I was able to call Durango home and have loved the experiences and adventures along the way.

[T2000] Wonderful! Tell us about your professional interests, including your time on the City Council, and other professional interests?
[Rinderle] ​​Serving on City Council, coupled with two terms as mayor, has been my biggest honor. I first took office during the recession, and we were able to leverage our dedicated parks, open space, and trails sales tax to acquire ​additional land parcels, allowing for enhanced trail connectivity for our enjoyment now and for future generations. As the co-owner of Durango Land and Homes Real Estate Brokerage, I have the opportunity to work with locals and those visiting our community to connect them with their future home or office space. Trail connectivity clearly enhances not just property values, but also quality of life, and I love to incorporate trail time into a property tour whenever possible.

[T2000] That is a must! Trails are a huge economic driver in Durango, often cited as a top reason to move to and visit Durango. Can you talk a little bit about your experience regarding economic development and trails?
[Rinderle] One of the many facets that makes Durango unique is the access to over 30 miles of trails just 30 minutes or less from the heart of our vibrant downtown, many right outside our back door. Our trails provide a broad and diverse economic impact through tourism, special events, community improvements, healthy lifestyles, property values, general consumer spending, and local jobs and investments. Having served for years on the La Plata County Economic Development Alliance, I’ve seen first hand how our numerous trail access points and connectivity have had a direct benefit to our local economy. These benefits include an enhanced quality of life with strong desire for businesses to grow and relocate here, overall community enhancement, and increases in home valuation based on proximity to trails. Studies have shown the economic impact also extends beyond job creation and enhanced valuations to include health care savings where access to trails make it easy for those to get outside and walk, run, and bike, and help create a place for all ages to enjoy, from Seniors Outdoors to our TrailKids programs, creating the next generation of stewards for our trail systems.

[T2000] Very well said, Christina! Well, let us be the first to say: Welcome to the Board of Directors. We are thrilled to have you! Please share with us your reasoning/motivation for joining Trails 2000.​
[Rinderle] ​Thank you! ​After my terms on City Council came to an end, I wanted to still find a way to be involved and give back to the community. Trail enjoyment spans generations and offers something for all ages.

[T2000] Please tell us about your trail use, and what you most value about the trails.
[Rinderle] ​Trails allow us the opportunity to decompress and reconnect with our natural surroundings, whether it be in sometimes needed solitude or a perfect opportunity to create memories with friends. My morning routine often starts with a run in Horse Gulch, and then sets the tone for a positive day ahead. I love the connectivity and easy access. 

[T2000] Absolutely, us too! What is your favorite trail and why?
[Rinderle] ​​My favorite trails are those in Horse Gulch as they are the ones I am able to enjoy the most, due to proximity to my home and office. It still amazes me that within five minutes, we can go from the heart of downtown to over 1,000 acres of open space and soak in the natural surroundings.

[T2000] We sure are lucky! If you could offer advice to future generations of trail users, what would it be?
[Rinderle] ​Get involved! ​​It can be easy to take for granted the incredible resource we have in this community, but it doesn’t happen without community support, donors, and those who can roll up their sleeves and help create and maintain our collective assets.

[T2000] Thanks Christina, that is very well said. Ok, now for the speed round—ready, set:
Run, hike, bike or ride? [Rinderle]​ Running, biking, and hiking, in that order of preference.
Tea or coffee?​ [Rinderle]​ Both, but decaf versions. You don’t want to see me caffeinated!

[T2000] Thank you, Christina! We really appreciate you taking the time and helping us to get to know you and hear about your experiences. Happy Trails!

Carver Brewing On Why Support Trails

April 7, 2017

Photo: ​Mike Hurst (center) with Travis Brown and Ned Overend at the top of Sugar Trail during Todd & Ned’s Dirt Fondo​.

Trails 2000 will soon celebrate with the Durango community during the Trails and Ales Party at Carver Brewing Company on Wednesday, April 26. The annual event has been hosted by Carvers (on Facebook) for many, many years; but, the Trails 2000-Carvers’ partnership goes back even further. Starting in the late 80s when Trails 2000 was first established as the region’s independent, nonprofit trail group, it was only a few months later that “Carvers” would start brewing beer to become “Carver Brewing,” the southwest’s original craft brew pub. Even back then, the young partnership came almost naturally, as like-minded individuals found sanctuary on Durango’s miles of trail and in Carver’s welcoming, nourishing restaurant and brewery; today, the duo remains.

While Carver’s supports trails year round, Trails and Ales is a prime example of Carvers’ support of Trails 2000, as they not only generously provide the outdoor patio venue for the event, but also offer a beer, wine or root beer, delicious spread of vegetarian or beef chili, and salad to any attendee who joins, renews, or gives a minimum of $20 to Trails 2000. This year, the first 40 attendees to donate also receive a Carver’s t-shirt or souvenir beer glass, as an added bonus. Unable to attend the event? Carvers is even offering a special gift to anyone who joins Trails 2000 during the month of April.

We just had to find out more about Carver’s motivation for supporting Trails 2000 and their sheer excitement for trails, so we sat down with Carver Brewing’s Owner Mike Hurst. Hurst is an avid trail supporter and user, whether he is out on the trails biking or hiking with family, friends and fellow trail fiends. Read on for more on why Carvers supports Trails 2000 and why you should too:

Photo: Mike Hurst and family on Animas Mountain.

[Trails 2000] Hi Mike! Thanks for joining us. Tell us about the motivation/reasoning at Carver Brewing for supporting Trails 2000 and the trails in Durango.
[Mike Hurst] My favorite Trails 2000 quote says: “Great Communities Build Great Trails, and Great Trails Build Great Communities.”
[T2000] Hey! That’s one of our favorites, too. And, “Happy Trails,” of course. Ok, go on.
[Hurst] Well, at Carvers we see it first hand when an employee is all jazzed about his/her first time mountain biking down Star Wars, or when backpackers come in fresh off the Colorado Trail with giant smiles on their faces as they order a beer and one of our big, juicy burgers. Trails make people happy.

[T2000] They sure do. So does good food and great beer! Pair the three together, and boy, what a trio you’ve got. What do you think makes this combo work so well?
[Hurst] Since the beginning, the people that have made up Trails 2000 and Carvers have been like-minded neighbors and friends with a love for our great outdoors. Trails 2000’s founding Executive Director Bill Manning was one of our favorite regulars at Carvers. Still today, we get treated to regular visits by Trails 2000 staff and volunteers.

[T2000] Wow. That’s over 25 years of ‘friendship’ right there. In your opinion, how do Carvers’ values align with Trails 2000?
[Hurst] At Carvers, our mission is to have our guests feel welcome, “at home” and taken care of while with us and to leave refreshed in body and spirit. Getting out on the trail is a similar experience where you get to return home refreshed in body and spirit—only a bit dirtier and sometimes scraped up!

[T2000] Don’t we know it! Now on to the main event: the Trails and Ales Party, coming up on Wednesday, April 26! As the long-time host, what do you most look forward to at this year’s event?
[Hurst] That’s an easy one: getting together with friends and getting to buy them a beer!

Photo: Mike Hurst during XC mountain bike race, spring 2017.

[T2000] Cheers to that—It is always a great event and we are grateful for all Carvers does to make it possible! Now, tell us a bit about your use of the trails.
[Hurst] Man, there’s a ton of options! Taking the family for a hike through Dalla Mountain Park (with plenty of playing on the bouldering problems), pinning it up Telegraph on the XC bike, snowbiking through Hidden Valley (which makes for a scenic work commute too), high-country wildflower missions from Molas Pass to town on the CT…I just need to try horseback riding I suppose.

 

[T2000] Yes, sounds like it. Why do you personally support trails?
[Hurst] I’m a self-professed beer drinker with a cycling problem. Durango provides the perfect training ground for athletes (and beer drinkers). The caliber of runners, cyclists and other professional athletes that utilize these trails is world class—probably the best in the country. What’s even more motivating is seeing these same athletes out there working on trails and supporting Trails 2000.

[T2000] Absolutely. What do you most value about the trails?
[Hurst] The freedom you feel when the tires/shoes/boots/hooves hit the dirt. And you don’t even have to get in your vehicle to get there. You just walk out the door and there’s singletrack for miles and miles, beckoning you to leave your worries and distractions behind and simply enjoy the outdoors. 

[T2000] Beautifully said, Mike. Tell us about your trailwork experience! Why is it important for you to give back on the trails?
[Hurst] I still have a goal of getting my chainsaw certification but until that happens, I’m relegated to infrequent trailing clearings and waterbar work. It can be easy to feel guilty when you leave work, family and all your “to-do’s” behind to get out on a trail. When you give back on the trails you at least don’t have to feel guilty for reaping the benefits of all that hard work done by trail crews and Trails 2000! That and who doesn’t love playing in the dirt?

[T2000] We sure do! What do trails mean to you?
[Hurst] Wilderness therapy has to be one of the healthiest, most effective ways to work through life’s challenges. Getting outdoors is a chance to hit the reset button. Trails offer the easiest access to this. All you need is a pair of shoes, really.

Photo: Hurst children on the Animas River Trail.

[T2000] And, what is your favorite trail and why?
[Hurst] Animas Mountain: whenever you’ve got a small window of free time you can hit Animas, get your heart rate up and before you know it you’ve topped out and the entire Animas Valley, Missionary Ridge, Needles and La Plata ranges have opened up before you. The downhill’s also quite a thrill.

[T2000] If you could offer advice to trail users or future generations, what would it be?
[Hurst] Don’t ever take trails for granted. Keep in mind they’re shared by diverse user groups. If we all work together to maintain and advocate for our trails they can be around for future generations. Oh, and try beer as a recovery drink—I recommend Saison for a post-trail treat (Carver’s handcrafted root beer is a good option for the kiddos and non-drinkers).

[T2000] Ok, now for our favorite part: the Trails 20000 speed round. Ready, set:
Pulaski or McLeod? 
[Hurst] Pulaski—great for getting through those roots!
Run, hike, bike or ride (or horses)? [Hurst] Biking, then running and hiking.
Tea or coffee (or beer!)? [Hurst] Coffee->Ride Bikes->Beer->(repeat)…

[T2000] Wow, thanks so much, Mike. Anything else you would like us to know about you, or specific to your support of Trails 2000?
[Hurst] I’ve always felt like this community and particularly, Carvers and Trails 2000, have taken me under their wing and taught me some major life lessons. Ever since the beginning the Carver brothers, Bill Manning, Trails 2000’s current Executive Director Mary Monroe Brown, and lots of Trails 2000 stakeholders like Ed and Patti Zink have shown the importance of finding common ground amongst different groups to work together and achieve a common goal—like building and maintaining trails. A town the size of Durango wouldn’t have its outdoor culture and amenities without people wearing multiple hats and giving back time and time again. It’s both humbling and inspiring. At Fort Lewis College’s Community Cycling celebration, Olympic Mountain Biker Todd Wells might’ve put it best: “The really cool thing about Durango is all of you make this seem normal.”

Happy Trails!

Join Ska Brewing In Supporting Trails 2000

March 3, 2017

It is almost a no brainer when two of Durango’s favorites are paired together: Trails and beer. In Colorado, the trail-to-brew pub phenomenon is nothing new, but we think it is even more deserving of the spotlight in the Southwest, with over 300 miles of trails within 30 minutes of downtown Durango and six local breweries to choose from. One such popular watering hole is Ska Brewing (visit Ska on Facebook), long-time supporters of Trails 2000 and dedicated users of the trails our community hold so dear.

In partnership with Ska, Trails 2000 is pleased to launch our Trail Partnership Program for 2017. The program aims to help us reach our lofty goal to increase membership this spring. To celebrate the program kick off, Ska Brewing wants folks to join Trails 2000 and is even offering a special gift to anyone who joins during the month of March.

To find out more about Ska’s support of Trails 2000 and their sheer excitement for trails, we sat down with Ska Co-Founder and President, Dave Thibodeau, and “Barroom Hero” aka Sales Manager, Arlo Grammatica. According to Dave and Arlo, they are always on the trails—Dave rides, runs and drinks, alone—see below—where as Arlo is a devoted mountain biker, open to ride with whomever. (Note: Arlo was unable to provide photos of himself on the trails, so despite Dave’s primarily solo trail and drinking adventures, he takes the image gallery spotlight here). Read on for a glimpse of “Ska on the Trail:”

Photo: Dave Thibodeau.

[Trails 2000] Hey Ska! Thanks for joining us today and of course, for offering a free beer to any one who joins Trails 2000 in March—we value and appreciate your continuous support of Trails 2000. Please tell us about Ska Brewing’s motivation for supporting Trails 2000 and the trails in Durango.
[Dave and Arlo] We support the trails in Durango for one main reason, we use them—they literally form the backbone of our wellness program at Ska. We regularly incorporate them into our work day. As we’ve grown, the amount of meetings that we have has also grown, and we’ll tell you that our “meetings” are a lot more productive when they take place on the trails. Trails 2000 is such a big part of our community—the different users, whether horse, hike, bike, or run, really rally around each other and pitch in. At Ska, we believe it’s our responsibility to support that which helps make our community a better place.

[T2000] Absolutely! What about you personally—why do you value and support trails?
[Dave/Arlo] We mountain bike on the trails many times a week and nothing starts a morning off better than a mountain bike ride. It keeps us fit and clear-headed in an industry where a cloudy head is not uncommon.

[T2000] Hey, no judgement here. We do think beer and trails have a long-standing connection, especially in Durango. What do you think makes this duo oh so sweet?
[Dave/Arlo] It’s all about balance, right? Time with friends. Exercise. Reward. Release. Of course, I (Dave) like to run the trails alone, and then drink beer alone—don’t be like me.

[T2000] Again, no judgement. Tell us about your use of the trails.
[Dave/Arlo] We’re both year-round trail users, and Trails 2000 does an amazing job making that possible, particularly keeping us updated on conditions and closings. Our distinct four seasons make that quite a challenge, and we couldn’t be more appreciative. In all honesty, it’s a big part of why we live here.

Photo: Dave Thibodeau.

[T2000] That is true for you and so many others in Durango—of course the beer culture also deserves some of the credit for why we choose to live in Durango! Can you tell us about your trailwork experience—why is it important for you to give back on the trails?
[Dave/Arlo] As lame as it sounds, time is one of our scarcest resources, so we choose to support Trails 2000 and the other trail volunteers through donation of space at the brewery, money, beer, etc. That said, we do pay all of our employees to volunteer at area nonprofits a few days a year, and we know that trailwork is often on the request list.

[T2000] What a cool perk! What do trails mean to you?
[Dave/Arlo] The trails mean so much to us. It is a unique situation to live and work in a town with world-class trails minutes away. Most people have to drive hours to do what we can do out the front door.

[T2000] Don’t we know it! What do you most value about the trails?
[Dave/Arlo] Accessibility and variety.

[T2000] What is your favorite trail and why?
[Dave/Arlo] Hard to choose, but our lunch loop and most frequent “meeting” spot is Sale Barn>Big Canyon.

[T2000] Great choice! If you could offer advice to trail users or future generations, what would it be?
[Dave/Arlo] Protect, respect, conserve, enjoy, have a beer at the end.

Photo: Dave Thibodeau.

[T2000] Cheers to that! Now for our favorite part: The Trails 2000 speed round. Ready, set:
Pulaski or McLeod? [Dave/Arlo] Gotta go with the Pulaski, such an important tool that Ed Pulaski’s original is actually part of the Smithsonian collection.
Run, hike, bike or ride (horses)? [Dave/Arlo] Tie, run=bike.
Tea or coffee (or beer!)? [Dave/Arlo] Tough one…NOT. Beer.

[T2000] Coulda called that one! Thanks so much Dave and Arlo, and the entire Ska crew, for all you do to support our organization and the trails in Durango. Anything else you would like us to know before we go?
[Dave/Arlo] We are so proud of a community that puts outdoor activities in the forefront. I (Arlo) am open to ride with anyone—Dave’s rides alone.

Be like Ska – Join Trails 2000 today. Cheers!

Welcome Steve Schwartz as Board Treasurer

February 23, 2017

Trails 2000 is pleased to announce the joining of Steve Schwartz as treasurer on the board of directors. Steve is a long-time Durango resident and currently works as vice president for Finance and Administration at Fort Lewis College (FLC), where he has been employed for 20 years. When he’s not hard at work for FLC, he can be found exploring the trails in and around Durango – be it hiking, mountain biking or snowshoeing.

Steve currently serves on the board with Daryl Crites, board president; John Baxter, board secretary; and Melissa Youssef; along with Executive Director Mary Monroe Brown to assist with the strategic vision and goals of Trails 2000.

We were lucky enough to sit down with Steve and hear about his experiences, passion for our trails and organization, and excitement in joining our Board of Directors. Read on:

Steve Schwartz and dog Maggie.

[Trails 2000] Steve! Thank you for sitting down with us today. Please tell us a little about yourself.
[Steve Schwartz] I was born in the Chicago suburb of Elgin, Illinois, and while I spent the greater part of my young adult life in Chicago, I eventually moved to the whitewater mecca of western North Carolina, where I discovered mountain biking and rock climbing. A few years later, a mountain biking adventure to Moab presented itself, including some time in Durango, where I visited – and became determined to attend – Fort Lewis College. While attending Fort Lewis, I became equally determined to make Durango my home. After graduating, I left Durango to pursue additional education; fast forward five years, and I was back at the Fort as an employee, where I have remained for the last 20 years.

[T2000] That is quite the adventure to calling home Durango. Please tell us more about your role at Fort Lewis and other professional interests?
[Schwartz] I’ve held a number of positions at Fort Lewis College, including director of Institutional Research, budget director, and for the last 15 years, vice president for Finance and Administration.  Other professional interest include involvement in community and statewide boards and advisory groups, primarily focused on the areas of education and/or finance.

[T2000] Well, let us be the first to say: Welcome to the Trails 2000 Board of Directors. We are thrilled to have you! Please share with us your reasoning/motivation for joining Trails 2000.
[Schwartz] It is my desire to be part of an organization that caters to the entire community, and I value and admire what Trails 2000 does in promoting access, trail etiquette and safety. The trails in and around Durango are an irreplaceable asset to our community and region, as they afford us entry into the spectacular beauty that is Durango, whether in town or in the high country. As the organization that plans, builds, and maintains these connections, Trails 2000 ensures access for all of us who value a healthy lifestyle.

Steve Schwartz

[T2000] Absolutely! And, what do you most look forward to as treasurer of Trails 2000 board?
[Schwartz] As the treasurer of the board, I strive to both help maintain and strengthen the financial viability of the organization. I also hope to help in expanding the trail network and increasing connectivity.

[T2000] Please tell us about your use of the trails.
[Schwartz] I love being out on our trails! Whether hiking, mountain biking or snowshoeing, whether alone or with a group, the trails are where I go to recreate.

[T2000] Good answer! What do you value most about trails.
[Schwartz] Too often, we take for granted the remarkable trails we have in and around Durango, and fail to recognize how truly fortunate we are to have such a community and regional benefit. It takes vision, immense effort, and dedication to plan, build and maintain our trail network. My hope is to help educate people regarding this asset and, thereby, grow our trail users and advocates.

[T2000] Can you tell us about your trailwork experience?
[Schwartz] My trail work experience includes maintenance tasks on the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina many years ago. My involvement in that work gave me a great appreciation for the efforts of the dedicated Trails 2000 volunteers.

[T2000] That is great; we do have a stellar group of volunteers at Trails 2000, and are always looking for more! Ok, time for a tough question. What is your favorite trail and why?

Steve Schwartz

[Schwartz] It’s very difficult to pick a favorite trail, as there are so many from which to choose. Perhaps it would be best to say that my favorite trail is the last one I experienced. That said, I always enjoy Log Chutes, as it contains a little bit of everything!

[T2000] Absolutely. If you could offer advice to future generations of trail users, what would it be?
[Schwartz] Enjoy the trails, be respectful, and try to always remember how fortunate we all are to live in this special place and have the means to access it.

[T2000] Thanks Steve, that is very well said. Ok, now for a quick speed round—ready, set:
Tea or coffee? [Schwartz] Coffee in the morning, tea in the evening.

[T2000] Thank you, Steve! We really appreciate you taking the time and helping us to get to know you and hear about your experiences. We are thrilled to have you. Happy Trails!

Meet Trail Crew Lead: Emma Millar

February 17, 2017

Trails 2000 is gearing up for an exciting 2017 trail season, and Executive Director Mary Monroe Brown is pleased to introduce Emma Millar as the trail crew lead. With over ten years of professional trail building experience—from owning a private business to working with the US Forest Service—Emma brings a stellar skill set and addictive enthusiasm to our organization and is already committed to our mission to plan, build and maintain trails, educate users and encourage connectivity on road, path and trail.

With Emma now a member of the team, we couldn’t wait to sit down with her and learn what she is most excited about as the trail crew lead. And boy, is she ever excited! In her first month, Emma has already been hot on the trail—cruising down favorite trails with nostalgia for her college days at Fort Lewis College, trekking on new trails to take in cool features like grade dips and curvilinear design (like a true trail nerd!), and of course, gearing up for upcoming Trails 2000 events such as the Open House and Trail Reporter Program Training, both held March 1 at Ska Brewing. Once we finally tracked her down (on Star Wars, of course), here is what she had to tell us about her trail expertise and passion for working with volunteers and the community on Durango’s trails. Read on: 

Photo: Emma Millar.

[Trails 2000] Emma! Welcome to the team. We are thrilled to have you as trail crew lead. Tell us a little about yourself.
[Emma Millar] Well, I’m originally from Sandpoint, Idaho, and first moved to Durango in 2007 to attend Fort Lewis College (it was really to ride bikes though). I visited a few colleges, but Durango really stuck out because of the easy access to awesome trails—I could ride world-class trails from my dorm room! For a kid without a car, that was pretty vital. After college, I moved to Vermont for a few years, but now I’m back living in Mancos.

[T2000] Aren’t we lucky in Durango, with over 300 miles of trails in our backyard! So you’ve always been drawn to trails—tell us about your professional trail career thus far.
[Millar] I started working on trails while I was in high school; my mom’s best friend was a forester and helped to get me a job with the Forest Service. Little did they know I was going to turn trailwork into a career! I continued working for the Forest Service in Bayfield while I attended Fort Lewis, and after college, I moved to Vermont, where I became a partner in a private trail design and construction company. Even though I loved the work, I needed to move closer to the desert and the mountains. Last summer, I left the Northeast and came back to Colorado.

[T2000] Welcome home! What was your motivation for joining Trails 2000? What do you hope to bring to your role?
[Millar] Well, I am absolutely thrilled to be here! I wanted to work with Trails 2000 for entirely selfish reasons—I love trailwork and I love working with volunteers. I wanted to be a part of such a forward-thinking organization. The mission also reflects my values; building and maintaining trails, and education are all important to me, but the connectivity part is what really resonated. I think the most important goal of trailwork is connecting people to the landscape and to each other.

Photo: Emma Millar.

[T2000] That is spot on in our book. So, what do you most look forward to with Trails 2000, and what do you hope to contribute to the trails in Durango?
[Millar] I’m so excited to start working on the trails! I hope to bring a bunch of enthusiasm to volunteer days and to inspire everyone to get out on the trails and to become trail stewards in addition to trail users. I want all trail users to feel like Trails 2000 is there for them and is listening to their concerns. So don’t hesitate to contact me and tell me what you want!

[T2000] Got trail ideas? Send ’em to Emma@Trails2000.org or come meet her at our Open House! Emma, can you tell us about your personal use of the trails?
[Millar] Mostly I hike and mountain bike. Honestly though, when I get on a new trail, I spend most of my time checking out design and construction techniques. It’s very distracting and you definitely should avoid hiking or riding behind me.

[T2000] Noted! What do you most value about the trails?
[Millar] Trails mean a lot to me—I’ve built my whole career on the power of trails to connect people to the landscape and to each other. There’s an understanding in trail design and construction that if we do our jobs right, the trail user will never even notice. Few people will really see a crib wall, or a grade dip, or notice the nice curvilinear design, and I love seeing people walk or ride right over my work without even realizing that any work was involved.

Photo: Emma Millar.

[T2000] That is a beautiful thing–yet so much works does go into it, thanks to people like you and our amazing Trails 2000 volunteers! Ok, we have to know: What is your favorite trail and why?
[Millar] I’m not sure I have a favorite trail; it’s like picking your favorite kid! I’ve built a lot of trails of which I’m very proud. My go-to after-work trail would probably be Star Wars. I’m a downhiller at heart, but I’m also pretty wimpy now, so Star Wars is great for making me feel super cool and fast, without being actually scary. However, it’s been about five years since I lived in Durango, and there are a lot of new trails, so I’ve got some riding to do!

[T2000] Yes you do! But before then, if you could offer advice to future generations of trail users, what would it be?
[Millar] My advice would be to just calm down, take a deep breath, and realize that no matter how you may feel about it, more people on trails is actually a good thing. Lots of studies show that besides the obvious health benefits of exercise and being outside, positive experiences on trails lead to more people actively protecting trails and access. And that is definitely good.

[T2000] It definitely is! We love that mentality. Ok, so now it is time for our favorite part. The Trails 2000 Speed round—ready, set:
Pulaski or McLeod? [Millar] Oh, man! I used to be such a Pulaski girl, but I’ve probably used a McLeod more in the last few years. My favorite tool is the right one for the job.
Run, hike, bike or ride (horses)? [Millar] Bike and hike.
Tea or coffee? [Millar] I love everything about coffee except the part where it makes me all weird. So I drink tea.

[T2000] Thanks Emma! It was so great to catch up with you. We know you’ve been busy getting ready for what we think is going to be an inspiring trail season. Before we go, anything else you would like us to know?
[Millar] Thank you! I’m stoked and grateful to be here, and I really do want to hear from trail users. Let me know what’s going on, and come introduce yourself at the Open House at Ska Brewing on March 1 and consider joining our Trail Reporter Program.

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
