2024 Purjue Canyon

Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Purjue Canyon

Loading Events

Purjue Canyon is a beautiful place to explore in the Owyhee Canyonlands and ITA has been working on the Purjue Canyon trail, one of the few trails that access the Little Jacks Wilderness, for several years.

Throughout the year, this trail becomes thickly overgrown with sagebrush, cottonwood, willow, wild rose, and many plants and grasses. From the upper trailhead, the trail enters the canyon near the Purjue Homestead and navigates several miles down Shoofly Creek. We will work to brush and improve tread as far as we can, with another group starting at the other end and working towards us.

More info is available at All Trails.
