With hikers beginning NOBO in the near future, I would like to remind those
using the Mapbooks and waypoint files that corrections and changes are
listed on the bearcreek web site. There are some items there already and I
expect that more will be added as the season progresses. I just added a
waypoint correction for Segment 11 in Wyoming. If you are hiking Wyoming
this summer be sure to check that out and make a note. This is also where
new maps will be posted reflecting trail re-alignments so you can keep your
Mapbooks up to date. Here is a direct link to the page:
http://www.bearcreeksurvey.com/map_updates.htm . I would encourage hikers
to take a look over there once in a while during the course of your hike in
case of updates that might make your experience better.
A little more news I was in Pietown a couple of days ago and all is well
there. The Good Pie Café, which was under new management last year, is now
being run by the original owners again. (I highly recommend the NM Apple
but they had numerous other flavors as well)
The beginning of Segment 19 is still a bit obscure. I stopped and
re-erected the marker right where you turn off of the highway but the cows
will probably take it down again. Just remember that the trail does not
follow the road you have to head almost due north from the Chain of
Craters sign. (Good place to carry your GPS) This is a nice desert hike
with some interesting Malpais lava fields thrown in. The ponds and tanks
were all looking good in there.
Have a great hike.

Sorry, this is a corrected version. In editing the copy, we mistyped CDTA's

Work Continuing on the Continental Divide Trail
As you know, the Continental Divide Trail Alliance (CDTA) made a very
difficult decision to close its doors in December 2011. Since that time,
many conversations have taken place between CDTA board members and staff,
and stewardship organizations such as Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC),
to ensure that volunteer work projects continue on the Continental Divide
National Scenic Trail. As a long-time partner of the CDTA, the US Forest
Service, and the BLM, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) has been asked
to assist in continuing the excellent work done so far and is taking on much
of the trail work in Colorado. We hope you will join us in this endeavor.
Opportunities to Volunteer & Stay Involved
VOC will be organizing 11 volunteer projects planned for Colorado portions
of the trail in 2012. Most will be in the Leadville area, with one on Wolf
Creek Pass in southwestern Colorado, and one near Georgetown along the I-70
corridor at Herman Gulch. We invite you to join VOC in these efforts as a
volunteer and/or as a supporter. Please visit www.voc.org
UMhIM1ns-6HWwXE26A7HP_jl-vDjaPcGOUtxhPrA-3At9mA4fFZDi19lMVqDfng=> to learn
more about these and other opportunities.
Additionally, the Colorado Trail Foundation will continue their great work
on sections of the trail that overlap with the Colorado Trail. Please visit
> for more information.
We have not yet been advised of organizations in ID, MT, WY or NM that are
conducting Continental Divide trail projects this year, but work is ongoing
by CDTA volunteers, Youth Corps and the agencies managing those areas. For
more information, contact the USFS Ranger District or BLM Field Office
closest to where you would like to volunteer.
There will be ongoing conversations in future months about continuing the
long term care of this national treasure and VOC expects to participate in
