Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Big Bar – Youth

Loading Events

ITA and One Stone are partnering for a weekend of camping and trail work. We will be camping at Big Bar Dispersed Camping area, on the Snake River south of Hells Canyon Dam. From here we’ll work on the trails that head up into the Payette National Forest to the east. The Allison Creek, Echols Creek, and Kinney Creek Trails offer several loop options for a great day hike from Big Bar. Used by climbers, hunters, and hikers, the thick brush and sections of hard-to-find trail make some sections difficult to navigate.  Higher up, the trail opens up to stunning views of Hells Canyon and the Snake River.

Trails: Allison Creek #514, Echols Creek #223, and Kinney Creek #221

Itinerary: Wednesday – Friday.

Food Provided by ITA: No, provided by One Stone
