Cooke City Historic Cabin and The Beaten Path Project 2019 Aug 8, 2019 – Aug 12, 2019

Stay in the historic Cooke City cabin!!! Have a fantastic breakfast in the morning, then go to work each day a few miles up the famed "Beaten Path" trail (from Cooke City over the Beartooths to the East Rosebud Wild and Scenic corridor). You will make a big difference working on one of the most well-loved trails in the A-B Wilderness!

We will work on adding drainage structures and building framed, raised trail on a few stretches of the Beaten Path trail near pretty Kersey Lake. The altitude is around 7,500 feet. Constructing turnpike and adding drainage structures makes this a fairly strenuous trip. Return to the cabin at night for nice dinners and conversation around the campfire.

Because we start out each day at the Chief Joseph/Clark’s Fork Trailhead, if you can't join for for all five days, you CAN join us for whatever portion of this trip you're available. Just make sure you are ready to hit the trailhead at 8 am! Our trips are FREE! We'll feed you well.

The historic Forest Service cabin sleeps six people, but we can handle more volunteers for those willing to camp in their own hard-sided camper or trucks. Tent camping is not allowed in this area. Bunks are first-come, first-served.
