Hewlett Gulch turn construction
Arrowhead Trails, Inc. was contacted by Wildland Restoration Volunteers (WLRV) to construct four switchback turns along the newly re-routed Hewlett Gulch Trail. The Hewlett Gulch trail is a very popular mountain biking and hiking destination in the Poudre River Watershed near Fort Collins, Colorado. In 2011 WLRV began construction of a new, more sustainable re-route trail segment that bypassed severe erosion gullies that had formed in particularly steep sections of the existing Hewlett Gulch trail. The newly re-routed Hewlett Gulch trail was a collaborative effort that included the US Forest Service, Overland Mountain Bike Club, Poudre Wilderness Volunteers, New Belgium Brewing, and Single-Track Trails. ATI was pleased to have the opportunity to play a role in the project as well by building the last four remaining switchbacks needed to complete the re-route. The rerouted Hewlett Gulch trail turned out great and is a lot of fun to ride!
