2023 Lochsa Peak

Volunteer Trail Work Project

Loading Events

Volunteers will spend the weekend working out of Wilderness Gateway off Highway 12 and the Lochsa River. This is a popular access point to the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness and we’ll work on the Lochsa Peak Trail. This section is part of the Idaho Centennial Trail, but instead of thru-hiking, we’ll enjoy the luxuries of camping in an established campsite. 

Trail: Lochsa Peak Trail #220 

Itinerary: Meet at Wilderness Gateway for an early start Saturday, car camping is available starting Friday night. Saturday– spend a full day working up Lochsa Peak Trail. Sunday– wrap up work or move to a different trail out of the campground. Return to the campground in the midafternoon to camp that evening or volunteers can head home.  

Crew Leader: Leslie Hvozda 

Estimated Drive Time from Closest Town: 1 hour from Kooskia
