2023 Prairie-Miner Lakes – Women Only (Full)

Loading Events

June 28th Update

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.  The trails around and connecting the two lakes rarely get trail maintenance activity, so plenty of saw work and tread repair is expected! 

Basecamp will be at/near the trailhead (i.e. car camping) – location TBD.  We will hike up the trail each day to work and return to basecamp at the of the day.  There will be no pack animal support. (You will need to carry your daypack with food, water, layers, filter, etc plus tools)

Trail: Prairie Creek #134, Miner Canyon #135 

Itinerary:  Please plan to be at the meeting location at 10am on Friday morning (July 7)– packed for the day and ready to start. Feel free to arrive Thursday evening and set up camp if you prefer. We expect to be done and back at the trailhead around 2:00pm on Sunday.

Crew Leader: Dagmar Rapp
