Bob Marshall Wilderness
August 4 - August 11
Join fellow Wilderness stewards for some good times in the legendary Bob Marshall Wilderness! Volunteers will meet AHS crew leader Saturday night in Hungry Horse and camp at the Ranger Station. The next morning you will meet the BMWF Crew Leader to caravan the hour drive to the trailhead. After sorting gear and supplies for the packer and shouldering your backpack, you will hike the 11 miles into camp. Base camp will be on the banks of the mighty Middle Fork in the Great Bear Wilderness. Monday- Thursday volunteers will work on the trails around the remote Three Forks area. Clearing fallen trees and reestablishing the trail bed (tread) will be the primary focus. Crosscuts, pulaskis, shovels, and hand saws will be the tools of choice. After work, relax by the river, pick huckleberries, or fish the Wild and Scenic Middle Fork! There is also a day off mid week to explore the area and bag a peak! Friday the group will pack up and hike back out to the trailhead and civilization. BMWF will provide all food, tools, and group gear.
