Close to: Nye, Absarokee, Columbus, Red Lodge
Spots Available: Full, Accepting Waitlist
Description: Leaving from the Main Fork of the Stillwater River (adjacent to Woodbine Campground), we will hike 11 miles to our base camp near Big Park, a great camping spot on the Stillwater River. From there, we will work on a 4.5 mile stretch of trail that includes a section of Trail #24 (Main Stillwater) and Trail #90 (up Wounded Man Creek). Our overnight camping gear will be carried in (7/8) and out (7/14) by the Beartooth Backcountry Horsemen, a volunteer club that generously assists with most of our backcountry projects.
Work: On this project, we will primarily be "brushing," which involves lopping and sawing branches and small trees encroaching the trail. We will also clear downed trees and clean water bars as needed.
Difficulty: More strenuous. Perhaps the most strenuous aspect of this project will be the 11 mile approach and exit (supported by horses, and fairly flat). From there, our work will be fairly standard for an ABWF trail project.
Meeting time & location: 8:00 a.m. Sioux Charley Lake Trailhead
