2023 Prairie-Miner Lakes – Women Only (Full)

Volunteer Trail Work Project

Loading Events

ITA’s Women in the Wild Program in partnership with the Wood River Trails Coalition, we’ll spend a long weekend clearing trail high in the Smoky Mountains. Volunteers will backpack into the lakes below Norton Peak (10,322’). The trails around and connecting the two lakes rarely get trail maintenance activity, so plenty of saw work and tread repair is expected! 

Trail: Prairie Creek #134, Miner Canyon #135 

Itinerary: Meet at the trailhead Thursday evening for an early start Friday. Hike in/gear packed in Friday and work our way in. Saturday– a full day of work. Sunday– clear our way back to the trailhead, packer will haul gear back.  

Crew Leader: Dagmar Rapp
