Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Hidden Lake – Women in the Wild

Loading Events

In the Payette National Forest, on trails south of Hazard Lake, we’re hosting a Women in the Wild Weekend project. We will be working on the Hidden Lake Loop, which takes hikers past Hard Creek Lake and Hidden Lake.  We’ll car camp near the trailhead off Goose Lake Road, where we’ll return to camp together each day after trail work. With great views and fishing, this is a great trail for a day hike or easy overnight backpack trip for those looking to explore the mountains and meadows north of McCall.

More info is available on All Trails.
