Project Description

Come join us on the first backcountry project of the season! Experience quintessential ‘Rocky Mountain Front’ landscape. Where the views are dramatic and the wildflowers off the hook. After meeting Frank and his mules at the trailhead, volunteers will shoulder there packs and hike along the the base of Mount Frazier and into the South Fork of Dupuyer creek where you will make camp in a grove of aspens along the creek. There will be 3 days of trail maintenance along trails #153 and #112. Crews will use crosscuts and hand saws to clear downed trees, and picks, shovels, and pulaskis to help with some general maintenance. This trail is popular with locals who are after a quiet and beautiful backpack or day hike. Your help will insure folks can access this beautiful landscape.
