Kersey Lake/Russell Creek Turnpike Work 2017 Aug 11, 2017 – Aug 15, 2017

This is the start of the famed thru-hike from Cooke City to the E. Rosebud (infamously known as "The Beaten Path"). Any of you who have hiked this trail know that the first section of the trail up to Kersey Lake is notoriously boggy. We will work on adding drainage structures and build framed, raised "Turnpike" through the muddy stretches. We will stay at the Cooke City historic cabin and hike to work each day.
