Project Description

Join fellow Wilderness stewards for some good times in the Great Bear Wilderness! Volunteers will meet the Crew Leader the morning of Saturday July 22 in Hungry Horse and caravan the to the trail head.  After sorting gear and supplies for the packer and shouldering your backpack, you will hike the 8 miles into camp. Base camp will be on the banks of the mighty Middle Fork in the Great Bear Wilderness.  Sunday- Tuesday volunteers will work on trail #266 up Long Creek.  Clearing fallen trees and reestablishing the trail bed (tread) will be the primary focus. Crosscuts, pulaskis, shovels, and hand saws will be the tools of choice. After work, relax by the river, pick huckleberries, or fish the Wild and Scenic Middle Fork!  Wednesday the group will pack up and hike back out to the trailhead and civilization. BMWF will provide all food, tools, and group gear. For a packing list and other helpful information click here:
