CCMR Monarch Crest Signage Project

Email from Chad Hixon

Hello CCMR!

We are very pleased to announce that the first in a series of signs to be installed on multi use trails throughout the Salida Ranger District and part of the Gunnison Ranger District is complete. On Wednesday, June 13th a group of CCMR volunteers and members of the Forest Service installed a 3 panel kiosk at the top of Monarch Pass and the beginning of the Monarch Crest Trail.

This project has been over a year in the making and has had the involvement of a multitude of recreational user groups and the Forest Service. The project, as most of you already know, was spearheaded by CCMR and made possible by private donations and a cost share agreement with the FS.

Again this is the first one to be completed at arguably one of the busiest multi use trails in the state. Look for more similar signs to be installed throughout this summer on other multi use trails.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen.
