Project Description

Join your fellow co-workers for some good times in the Great Bear Wilderness! Volunteers will meet the Crew Leader Saturday morning in Hungry Horse and caravan the hour drive to the trailhead.  After sorting gear and supplies for the packer and shouldering your backpack, you will hike the 8 miles into camp. Basecamp will be along the bank of the mighty Middle Fork in the Great Bear Wilderness.  Sunday- Tuesday volunteers will be working on trail #266 down Long Creek.  Clearing down 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 try your luck at fishing!  Wednesday the groups 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:
