Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Hum Lake (Full)

Loading Events

This is ITA’s annual clean-up of the Hum Lake Trail. We’ll remove any trees that have fallen on the trail over the winter and clear out drains and water bars as we go. This popular trail leads to amazing views, beautiful lakes, and abundant wildflowers. This area of the Payette National Forest offers many excellent hiking, camping, and fishing opportunities nearby. This was ITA’s first project in 2010, and we’re so excited to continue our work here, and across the state!
