Egg hunt set for Saturday
The Woody Creek Community Center (WC3) will host an Easter egg hunt on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All the materials will be provided for kids to get creative with crafts. At 11:30 a.m., the egg hunt will start. Kids will be split by age group so that everyone gets plenty of treats. The event is free to WC3 members and $5 for non-members. Children 2 years old and under are free.
The WC3 Café will be offering a lunch special for all attendees: half off any kids menu item with the purchase of an adult menu item.

Climb for trail restoration
Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) is launching a new summer-long, valley-wide special event named Climb For Trails. The event will run from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and provides an incentive to get people out and exercising on the trails that RFOV helps maintain. Climb For Trails is a fundraiser that will benefit RFOV and their work on the community’s trail system and public lands.
Individuals and teams can register on www.ClimbForTrails.org  to log every hike, bike or run they make to the top of the trails. Participants are encouraged to gather sponsors and make a personal pledge to raise money for trail and restoration projects in the valley. Climbs can be logged starting on Memorial Day Weekend, Friday, May 24, throughout the summer to Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 2.
The event concept is modeled on another event that takes place in Jackson Hole, Wyo. on the main skill hill, King Mountain, called “Climb the King.”
RFOV has expanded on the concept by making Climb For Trails a valley-wide event that includes trails throughout the valley, with an emphasis on the most popular hikes in each community: Smuggler in Aspen; Rim Trail in Snowmass Village; Red Mountain/Jeanne Golay Trail in Glenwood Springs; and Colorow Trail in New Castle. RFOV hopes to add Arbaney-Kittle Trail in Basalt in 2014 with the proper clearances from the Bureau of Land Management. Due to current regulations and access concerns, Red Hill cannot be used, inspiring RFOV to include an “other” category which expands the event to include any trail not on BLM lands.
To register for the event, participants pay a $15 fee in return for a baseball cap and an account on the new website, www.ClimbForTrails.org , where users can log and monitor climbs, gather sponsors and post pictures, comments and anecdotes on the public wall. Businesses can cover the cost of their employees and receive a discount. Still under construction, the website is up with information, but will not be open for registration until May 1.
