Location: Southwest of Big Timber/McLeod; SE of Livingston—Yellowstone Ranger District

Work: Extensive brushing of lodgepole saplings obscuring the trail; Sawing out trees across the trail. Age appropriate work. This area burned a decade or so ago, and the lodgepoles came back with a vengeance!

Description: While this trip has traditionally been offered to high school students, we are opening it to the public this year! Our group will be hiking about 6 miles before we set up camp in pretty meadows along the stunning West Boulder River for 3 nights. From camp we’ll hike 2-miles or less each to where we’ll do our work to make this trail much more passable. We’ll also spend time in the evenings talking about conservation issues and the value of our public lands and wilderness. There will horse-packing support to carry in our heavy food, tools and camping equipment.

Difficulty: work is Moderate. Hike in is moderate Horse Support: YES Elevation: 6300 ft.

Group size: We will not exceed 10 people on our trail projects in 2020

Meeting time & location: 9:00 a.m. at the West Boulder Trailhead/Campground, which is at the end of the W. Boulder Road just past McLeod. Easy to Google Map.

Bring: Backpacking necessities. Boots, a reasonable-sized day pack, good rain gear. A good two-person tent you can share. Sleeping bag/pad. See “Multi-Day Trip Packing List.”
