Meyers Cove is a remote but popular access point into the Frank Church Wilderness and ITA has been working in this area for several years. This year, crews will have their personal gear packed into a backcountry primitive camp up West Fork Camas Creek. From here we’ll work up toward Woodtick Ridge, clearing trail and assessing any emergency drainage issues from last year’s fire.
Trails: West Fork Camas Creek #128, Pole Creek Trail #129, Woodtick Ridge Trail #131
Itinerary: Meet at Meyers Cove Saturday evening for an early start Sunday. There is a pit toilet and camping at the trailhead. Hike into camp, clearing as we go and set up the base camp. Monday – Friday, work up the trails and return to camp each evening. Depending on how far we work, there is potential for packers to return and bump our camp further up trail. Volunteers can take a day off mid-week to relax and explore. Saturday, gear will be packed back to the trailhead, and the crew will hike out and can head home.
Crew Leader: John McCarthy
