Project Description

The pack bridge that spans Sun River is an impressive piece of engineering. Because it was constructed inside the Wilderness boundary, modern machinery was not used to build it and all the materials were packed in by horse and mule. Volunteers will do some maintenance to keep the bridge in tip top shape and keep it from falling into the river! Work includes maintaining the retaining wall at the bridge abutment.

For a packing list and other helpful information:
