The Colorado Riverfront Trail provides a beautiful, scenic escape for walkers, bikers, joggers, skaters, and fisherman. Running along the banks of the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers, the trail features cotton wood groves, wetlands, cattail marshes, islands, and an abundance of wildlife.But volunteers are needed to help patrol the trail. .

Volunteer trail hosts make themselves available to answer questions and are "armed" with a whistle, a cell phone, and basic first-aid knowledge. Volunteers must be able to donate two hours a week to trail supervision.

During scheduled patrol times, volunteers bike or walk as they check for trail damage, answer questions, make sure dogs are leashed, and provide a secure presence and assistance on the trail. There is no pay involved, but  some training is required. Anyone can apply and there is no age requirement for volunteers.

If you are interested in becoming a Trail Host, you should contact Lori Gregor with Grand Junction Parks and Recreation Department at  254-3876.
