Sign at Balderson

May, 2015 —

GDETF volunteers completed the Balderson Staging Area improvements that were started late last year with the removal of the old corral.  Blackberry clearing and a little tree limb trimming has created a half dozen additional rig pullouts within the site.  Check it out!

Corrals, picnic tables, and fire rings have been delivered and are waiting to be installed at Dru Barner!  We will soon be scheduling work days to accomplish these tasks.  We need your help! – P.S. Jerry Scribner is spearheading this, the plan is completion before July 4, 2015!

New signage on Trust for Public Land (TPL) trail easements!

TPL trail sign

Over the past several years, Georgetown Divide Recreation District (GDRD) and GDETF (formerly EDETF) have partnered to develop and maintain equestrian/hiking trails on TPL trail easements located on four privately owned parcels in the vicinity of the Georgetown Airport.  Most recently, GDRD produced trail use regulation signage, which was placed on the trail easements by GDETF members Kit and Janice Myers and Tom and Nancy Sandy in early 2015.  These GDRD trail easements provide trail access for hikers and equestrians from Reservoir Road to Spanish Dry Diggins and the immediate area around the airport.
