Project Description

You will be high in the alpine and enveloped by the lush greenery of Grizzly Basin opening a trail to one of The Front's spectacular "reef" walls. Volunteers will be removing an old worn out puncheon (wooden walkway) and replacing it with a turnpike (gravel filled walkway). You will camp in a remote and beautiful alpine basin at the foot of Scarlet Mountain, just below the Continental Divide.
