2023 Caton Lake II

Volunteer Trail Work Project

Loading Events

Last minute project to keep working on opening the trail to Caton Lake! We’ll car camp at the trailhead and work up the Caton Lake Trail, clearing logs as far as we can over the weekend. An ITA crew spent 5 days cutting out 214 trees earlier this season, and about 100 remain! Join us for a saw-work-heavy Labor Day weekend.

Trail: Caton Lake Trail #093 

Itinerary: Meet at the trailhead Friday evening. Saturday and Sunday, working on Caton Lake Trail returning to camp at the trailhead each evening.  Sunday evening or Monday morning, head home. Or stay Monday to relax by Rainbow Lake, just a mile and a half from the trailhead. 

Crew Leader: Patti Stieger 

More Information:  All Trails   

Estimated Drive Time from Closest Town: 2 hours 15 min from Cascade

Difficulty Rating  

Hike: 2/5 Moderate
Hiking up to five miles and 1,000 feet from camp total elevation change. See the linked map for the elevation profile.

Project Work: 3/5 Moderately Strenuous
The area burned in 2007 so it has no shortage of downed trees to saw out each year. Repeated log out and some brushing/tread repair. Volunteers can pick trail duties based on comfort and ability level and are encouraged to work at their own pace.
