    • Blanco Public Library, 1118 Main St, Blanco Tx 78606

    The Friends of Blanco State Park are hosting the Central Texas Trail Tamers in teaching an introductory class on building and maintaining hiking trails.  The “Introduction to Trail Maintenance” class is based upon a curriculum developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service. In them you will learn “how trails work”, basic design concepts, safety protocols, and how to gain “trail eyes”.  Kevin Deiters is the instructor.

    The class will meet at the Blanco Public Library (1118 Main St, Blanco Tx 78606) and then move to the trails of Blanco State Park to apply the lessons learned during the classroom portion.

    The Friends of Blanco State Park is a volunteer, non-profit organization committed to the preservation, protection, and improvement of Blanco State Park. Our mission is to work in partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife to maintain and protect the park's natural beauty, for current enjoyment and that of future generations.

    • Carson National Forest New Mexico

    The Trail Tamers continue to support the Continental Divide Trail Coalition in their efforts to build and maintain the Continental Divide Trail. 

    This year we will return to the Carson National Forest in northern New Mexico to rehabilitate 5 miles of an area along the CDT that has been affected by constant blow down which has resulted in the closure of the CDT and surrounding areas until now. Volunteers will work to reestablish the tread and install drainage structures where needed and may also assist with installing CDT signs as reassurance markers along the Trail. Volunteers will arrive the evening of the 28th to set up camp, workdays will be the 29th-31st.

    This project is broken up into 2 separate projects. Volunteers can choose to register for one or both of the Canjilon Lakes projects, if you plan on going to both, make sure to register for both.
