Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Shoofly Wilderness Access

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.

ITA and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers are partnering for a day of non-traditional trail work. The end goal is to create a parking place for folks wanting to enjoy the Wilderness on foot and discourage motorized use on the trail. The first step is to condense the existing two-track route into a single-track trail. ITA and BHA volunteers will help by spreading rocks, wooden posts, sagebrush, and other debris in the extra track.

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.
