Service Project Details
We’re overjoyed to be partnering with the fine folks at the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Foundation for this project. Join us for a week of brushing trail corridors from encroaching brush and small trees, including clearing downed trees and cleaning/repairing water bars along the way. With the assistance of pack support, we’ll have a full day to backpack 11 scenic, stunning, and fairly flat miles to our base camp at Big Park, a pristine camping spot on the Stillwater River. Throughout the week, we’ll be brushing a 4.5 mile stretch of trail that includes a section of Trail #24 (Main Stillwater) and Trail #90 (up Wounded Man Creek).
This is a high elevation project: 5000’ (trailhead start) – 6500’ (basecamp).
Project Leaders: Ben Daley (Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Foundation) and Max Gordon (Wilderness Volunteers)
