Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 East Fork Lost Creek

Loading Events

Join ITA for a weekend of trail work near Wallace, Idaho as we work on the East Fork Lost Creek Trail. This trail follows the creek it’s named after for several miles before climbing up to Bobtail Ridge. We’ll work on trail maintenance, removing logs and brushing through this beautiful densely forested area, returning to the trailhead in the afternoon to camp together next to Lost Creek.

Project information is subject to change. Crew leaders will communicate via email. Failure to respond to your crew leader may result in being dropped from the project. See our FAQs, reach out to your crew leader, or contact ITA staff at trails@idahotrailsassociation.org if you have questions.

Refundable deposit: $25

Why do I need to pay a deposit? We’ve had trouble with people backing out of trips at the last minute which can really affect the productivity of the overall project. By charging a refundable fee, volunteers are less likely to cancel their reservation. Refunds will not be given to volunteers that do not show up or cancel their reservation. Exceptions will be made for medical reasons or unforeseen circumstances. Volunteers can choose to donate the deposit to ITA. All donations are tax-deductible and will go towards maintaining trails throughout Idaho. If you require assistance in paying for this fee, please contact us at trails@idahotrailsassociation.org and we will waive the cost.
