Volunteer Trail Work Project

Loading Events

Volunteers will be working up the Clear Creek and Red Mountain trails to Red Mountain Peak, which sits at 8,700 feet elevation. This trail has some erosion issues, and the crew will be focusing on drainage and tread work as well as logout and brushing. The steep trail rewards volunteers with panoramic views of the lakes below and of the Sawtooth Range. The crew will camp at the Red Mountain Trailhead, which has a camping area with a restroom, picnic tables, and fire pits.
