Fox Lake, Trail #3 2022 Aug 18, 2022 – Aug 23, 2022

Close to: Cooke City, Gardiner, Red Lodge

Spots Available: 1/7

Description: Leaving from the Clarks Fork Trailhead, we will hike about 4 miles to our basecamp at Fox Lake. Our overnight camping gear will be carried in (8/18) and out (8/23) by the Beartooth Backcountry Horsemen, a volunteer club that generously assists with most of our backcountry projects. Fox Lake sits at the base of the Beartooth Plateau, and is just off the Beaten Path, a popular thru hike that connects Cooke City to Roscoe via the Beartooth Plateau and East Rosebud Drainage. If time allows, there are plenty of great day-hiking options in the area.

Work: On this project, we will be doing a wide range of work: replacing an old puncheon (low bridge over boggy terrain), improving tread, and using fill to even out the trail.

Difficulty: Moderately Strenuous: While we won’t necessarily be hiking long distances on this project, the work itself is a bit more strenuous. We will be doing a lot of digging, transporting dirt, and removing rocks from the ground.

Meeting time & location: 9:00 a.m. at the Clarks Fork Trailhead.
