Dip into the Colorado backcountry and make a difference with Gravity Haus’ adopt a trail days. These monthly member events are the perfect opportunity to give back to the community and to beautify and restore beloved trails in your backyard.
Join other Gravity Haus activists for a Booth Lake trail work adventure (July 13, August 10, September 16) in partnership with Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance (VVMTA). The Booth Lake Trail is a 4-mile blue singletrack trail located near Vail, Colorado. This out-and-back path is primarily used for hiking, with locals and visitors frequenting the scenic trail.
“One of our guiding questions when we partake in any endeavor, is whether it is ‘Good for the Planet?’ We’re passionate about preserving the environment and the trails we like to play on. What better way to give back and bring together our community than serving on local trails,” Razee says.
Gravity Haus typically sees volunteers spanning ages 11 to 70, with brand founders and owners Jim and Alicia Deters showing up ready to give back and preserve Booth Lake at previous events this year. A minimum of six participants is needed for each trail give-back day. Last month, Gravity Haus saw employees, members and family and friends of the GH community participate. The group learned from a VVMTA ambassador about water diversion and closing down social trail spurs and they helped pick up trash along the adopted trail.
“As a longtime trail user in the Vail Valley, it always gives me a swell of pride to work on rerouting a section of trail, building a new addition to expand trail access and preserving a well-traveled and loved trail,” Razee says. “Partnering as an Adopt a Trail sponsor with VVMTA shows our commitment to giving back in the communities we serve and in which we adventure. This is who we are as a community and company. Join us for the next one!”
