Deep in Hells Canyon, in the shadow of the Seven Devils, ITA’s staff, board, and raffle winners will meet for a week of trail work and discussion. We will take a jetboat ride over Class III rapids to our campsite at the confluence of Granite Creek and the Snake River. This is a fully supported trip including our own private volunteer chefs to prepare meals, and a large group tent for shelter if needed. During the day crews will split up to tackle trail maintenance on Little Granite Creek, working up past the historic Hibbs Ranch, and along the Snake River National Recreation Trail.
