2022 Saw Training

OTG members completed their chainsaw and crosscut saw certification training this past weekend. Seven new sawyers were certified for a period of three years. Sawyers whose cert has expired will re-certify on May 15th.  Thank you to Tim Foulkes, our OTG saw trainer, John Hulburd for planning and all of the OTG members who came out to certify, get a "refresher," or re-certify.  Great job, all!!

OTG Closes on Land Purchase

The Perimeter Trail west of Ouray includes a section where hikers must walk along Oak Street,  but OTG has found an exciting new opportunity to extend the trail northward so that it reaches Oak Street at the City Shop, where the trail continues east across a footbridge and into Fellin Park near the City Pool and Visitor’s Center.  The new trail section will be about 0.3 miles long, and will eliminate the current section along Oak Street.  Best of all, the new section will have spectacular views of the City and surrounding valley and mountains.

Middle Fork Trip a Success!

Eight OTG volunteers spent 4 memorable days camping and working on the Middle Fork Trail in the Uncompahgre Wilderness, with pack horse support by the US Forest Service. The crew cleared down trees, replaced a wood post and sign on the high pass to the East Fork drainage, and repaired eroded sections of trail. Summer wildflowers were spectacular, and rain mostly held off until late in the day when the group could relax under a tarp back in camp.
