2024 Lake Shore

Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Lake Shore

Loading Events

ITA volunteers will cut out logs and remove brush on the Lakeshore Trail along the upper western shore of beautiful Priest Lake in northern Idaho. There will be car camping available for those who would like to spend the night and enjoy the camaraderie. This is becoming an annual project for ITA, clearing trees that fall over the winter to open it up for the season.

More info can be found on All Trails.

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.
