2024 Moose Mountain

Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Moose Mountain

Loading Events

In the Cabinet Mountains, we will work from the Moose Lake Trailhead up towards Moose Mountain (elevation 6,473). This trail has been severely overgrown the last few years and we will continue our progress removing trees and brushing so the trail is clear and visible for hikers.

ITA has been working on this loop in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest for several years now, including one day earlier this season toward Blacktail Lake. When clear, this trail makes a great day hike loop or easy overnight backpacking trip, complete with mountain lakes.

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.
