    Default Trail Magic question

    Hey this might be a stupid question, Im not a thru hiker at all, but I am traveling to Breckenridge in September. Would there be any opportunity to do any trail magic in that area at that time?

    No much. 99% of the traffic is local mountian bikers and they don't need trail magic. I spent the first week of September hiking from the north terminus to Brek and only meet like two other hikers, a young couple. Meet lots of mountian bikers though.

    Thanks for the info, I will be flying out that day. I was hoping I could bring some food for some hikers.

    Do this trail magic, and they feed you. What better kind of trail magic is there than building the trail itself?

    Anyway, something to consider for the future!

    Mags beat me to it. Hikers don't need need more junk food, they need a trail. Help with that.

    Yep.

    And as wonderful of a trail as CT /CDT in CO is, it needs work. And volunteers to do it
    Desperate need of water diversions in places, especially on old steep jeep roads. Etc.
