Eagle Cap Wilderness
August 3 - August 11
We’ll kick our trip off with a brief project overview at the Forest Service Barn in Enterprise, followed by dinner at a local brew pub. There are several lodging options in town, or you can pitch a tent at the Forest Service compound. Our base camp will be located on Huckleberry Mountain; work sites will include locations on those parts of trails 1667, 1689 and 1665 that primarily access McCubbin Basin and the headwaters of Goat Creek. Our goal for the week will be to improve trail access and reduce sedimentation in streams. Specific projects will vary throughout the week and will include building and maintaining erosion control structures, trail clearing (with crosscut saws), and brushing. Expect to use a variety of primitive tools, ranging from bow saws & crosscuts for log-out to shovels and pulaskis for tread maintenance and restoration. Note that this is an arduous project in a spectacular backcountry setting—be prepared to earn your meals!
