Last week, Trails 2000 took to the Telegraph Trail System, with pulaskis and pickaxes in hand, in an effort to repair and rehabilitate damaged sections of the popular trail.

Trails 2000 usually meets every week to repair or create a trail in the Durango area. It is the organization largely responsible for the high-quality trail system in our area, and it is totally volunteer-based.
