Share the wave, dude.
Same deal in Southwest Colorado, just different geography.
Here, it's a matter of share the trail ... just like surfers and their waves.
To honor the trails, National Trails Day will be celebrated in Durango with a special program June 5 at Santa Rita Park.
The program: Share the Trails: Hike It. Hoof It. Bike It. Ride It.
Festivites will begin with a $5 pancake breakfast from 8 to 9:30 a.m.
Starting at 9:30 a.m., there will be free hikes, rukns and rides on area trails. There will be trail hikes, bike rides and a dog walk. Advance registration is available at www.sharethetrails.org.
The festivities, which will run to noon, are sponsored by the San Juan Mountains Association, San Juan Public Lands, Trails 2000 and Alpine Bank.
Organizers bill the event as an opportunity to meet new trail buddies - for hoofing, hiking, biking, etc.
In addition, trail information and maps will be available for motorized and nonmotorized recreation in the area.
There also will be registration for future horseback rides, OHV or motorcycle rides.
The Share the Trails concept is simple: Respect each other on the trails, help ensure that everyone can enjoy the common ground.
There will be numerous booths at the National Trails Day program in Durango. A variety of user groups will share their trail knowledge at their booths.
In addition to the sponsors, participating groups are the Colorado Trail Foundation, Creeper Jeepers Gang, Four Corners Horsemen, la Plata County Multi-event Center Task Force, Mesa Verde Backcountry Horsemen, Rocky Mountain Ramgler, OHV Club, San Juan Trail Riders, Vallecito Conservation and Sporting Association and Vallecito Service League.
