Cathedral Rock - A Trail Like No Other

Phase Five Scheduled
The Cathedral Rock trail endures the impact of 30,000 users per month! Restoration has been in progress for five years, and requires another segment to build 20 giant rock steps, additional retaining walls, drainage structures, fencing and more work on “the crack” to direct hikers to the designated trail corridor.
Severe weather events during the 2023 trail season prevented completion, as crew members were unable to scramble on icey slickrock to work zones at the higher elevations. To complete the final steps, it will be necessary to quarry rock from adjacent sources.
It's anticipated that this will involve up to six weeks of trail crew work and possible closures. Work will be performed by the District’s seasonal trail crew augmented by American Conservation Experience crew members and specialist rock artisans from Summit to Sea. Volunteer teams will direct hiker traffic for public safety while the work is in process.
Cash cost. $113,230. Needed for full funding*: $41,600.00.
*Amount may change based on pending/future grant submissions.
