PROJECT END DATE:
Project Start Date:
Rocky Mountain Ranger District
Straight Creek Trailhead
miles to camp:
10 miles mostly river grade with little elevation gain
Help rehab an old burn area, and get this beautiful loop trail back on the map! The Cigarette Creek trail #247 climbs significantly (about 1,800 feet) from the Continental Divide Trail along Straight Creek and follows along a ridge before meeting back up with the Straight Creek Trail for a total of 7.4 miles. Crews will clear trees, help establish the trail, and maintain some rock cairns along the way. Keep in mind these will be strenuous work days as the hiking will be steep to and from the worksite. You will be rewarded with a day off cooling by the creek, or hiking to the spectacular Halfmoon Park, or even Scapegoat Mountain for the most ambitious explorers!
For a packing list and other helpful information:
Meet the BMWF Crew Leader in Augusta at the USFS Information Station and caravan/ carpool to the trailhead where you will camp for the night for an early start on the 15th.
Meeting Date and Time:
July 14th, 5:30 PM
