Project Description

Spend a week in the shadow of The Bob's most iconic geologic phenomenon, the Chinese Wall. Volunteers will hike from Benchmark trailhead along the Continental Divide Trail and camp near Indian Creek. The group will be working to improve the trail tread and drainage on trail #211 working toward White River Pass. Pulaskis and strong backs will be the tool of choice. Enjoy spectacular views of Red Butte Peak and Haystack Mountain. A day off will give you a chance to hike to the southern end of the 22 mile long Chinese Wall.
