Project Description

Volunteers will meet the BMWF Crew Leader and volunteer packer at the North Fork trailhead.  After sorting gear and supplies for the packer and shouldering your backpack, you will hike the 6 miles into camp. Basecamp will be near the North Fork Trail crew cabin. Thursday-Saturday volunteers will be working on the Dry Fork trail  re-treading a high water trail.  Digging into the backslope and reestablishing the trail bed (tread) will be the primary focus.  Pulaskis, shovels and hand saws will be the tools of choice. After work relax by the creek or at camp.  Sunday the groups will pack up and hike back out to the trailhead and civilization. BMWF will provide all tools and  safety gear. Montana Academy will provide all the food, personal gear and cooking equiptment.  For a packing list and other helpful information:
