Guffey Gorge, aka Paradise Cove, is a popular day-use recreation spot offering visitors opportunities to swim, hike, scramble, or just relax and enjoy the views. It is located approximately 12 miles away from the town of Guffey, Colorado. 

RMFI is partnering with the Bureau of Land Management, Royal Gorge Field Office, to improve the access trail to this little spot of paradise by installing buck and rail fencing, rock steps, and check dams. This will be technical work and is recommended for those willing to learn some higher-skilled tasks and up for some strenuous work! Hike to the worksite is minimal as we are working very close to the trailhead.

We will be working BOTH days, Saturday and Sunday, September 21-22, and we invite and encourage volunteers to work both days and camp out with us! Meals will be provided to camping volunteers for Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast, and Sunday packable sack lunches. 

Volunteers wishing to camp should bring their own camping gear (tent, sleeping pad, sleeping pad, etc.) This is car camping not far from the worksite at Guffey Gorge. Volunteers may also choose to volunteer on just one day. Please indicate which day(s) you will join us upon registration, and any dietary restrictions you have if staying for the campout.  

All volunteers who wish to stay and play at the cove after trail work wraps up at 3:00 either day should bring their recreational attire to keep in their vehicles at the trailhead!
