Lake Abundance, Trail #389 2022 Aug 4, 2022 – Aug 9, 2022

Close to: Cooke City, Gardiner, Red Lodge

Spots Available: 5/7

Description: For this project, we will be car camping at Lake Abundance, which sits near the head of the Stillwater River drainage (which flows to the north) and Lake Abundance Creek, which flows East and eventually South through Slough Creek into Yellowstone National Park. From our base camp near the lake and trailhead, we will travel each day to the worksite within three miles. This is a stunning part of the A-B, and a great place to spend a week.

The road to arrive to Lake Abundance requires a 4WD vehicle with clearance. However, last year we were able to caravan from Daisy Pass with volunteers who had vehicles that could make it. Upon signing up, please let us know what kind of vehicle you will be driving when you come, and we will plan accordingly!

Work: On this project, we will be improving the tread of the trail as it descends toward Slough Creek.

Difficulty: Moderately strenuous. While we are car camping for this project and will not need to hike far distances to arrive at the worksite, tread work can be tiring!

Meeting time & location: 9:00 a.m. at Colter Campground. We will caravan from there to Daisy Pass before carpooling to the trailhead.
