A three-day weekend project to work on the part of Trail #311 inside the Salmo-Priest Wilderness Area. We’ll camp at the cars and do a 2-mile walk to work each morning. This trail is part of the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. Most of our work will be logging out the trail inside the wilderness. Our friends in the Washington Trails Association (WTA) will be working down #311 from the west end and we will work up from the east end and meet on the trail.
