    CATSSunday, July 12, 2015 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM (MDT)

    Manitou Spring Free Parking Lot
    10 Old Man’s Trail
    Manitou Springs

    The East Fork Sand Canyon Trail needs one more day of work to be completed.  The Friends of Red Rock Canyon and Manitou Springs Trail Cats started building this 3/4 mile new trail in April and May.  The City has hired a contractor to continue the work mechanically.  It is a great trail in the south west part of the park, with intimate trees and great views.

    Red Rock Canyon needs a lot of work to repair trail damage caused by the May rains.  So we will also be doing work improving the Intemann and Contemplative trails.  There is  a lot to do, so invite a friend along.

    As with all Manitou Cats trail projects we work from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM  and then go out for a free beer and after work party.

    Red Rock Canyon Closed Due to Flooding

    RRC Closure MapMay 2015Due to the tremendous amount of rain that’s recently hit the park, Red Rock Canyon Open Space is currently closed indefinitely. Please stay out of the park until it re-opens as it is dangerous because of unstable ground.

    See pictures of the damage here.

    Pond Wall Rebuilding

    Work has been done at the Red Rock Canyon pond wall. The Parks department hired a mason to repair the rock with native rock from the original wall. There are drains, underground, on either side of the wall to remove water. They should be finishing up the project soon.
    Come over, take a hike, and check out the progress! See more photos here.DSC_5819
