2024 Wind River Signage (Full)

Volunteer Trail Work Project

2024 Wind River Signage (Full)

Loading Events

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, we’ll spend a weekend on a two-part project at the Wind River Pack Bridge. The first goal is to assist the Forest Service in installing interpretive and invasive species signage at the Gospel Hump Wilderness boundary. Then we’ll brush and improve tread and switch backs up the Idaho Centennial Trail as it climbs up the hill and continues into the mountains high above. We can camp across the bridge on the beach along the Salmon River.

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.

Trails: Idaho Centennial Trail #089

Itinerary: Weekend project- meet Saturday morning, wrap up midday Sunday. Volunteers are encouraged to camp at the trailhead on Friday evening.

Food Provided by ITA: No

Crew Leader: Clay Jacobson

Estimated Drive Time from Closest Town: 1 hour from Riggins

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.

Difficulty Rating

Hike: 3/5 Moderately Strenuous- Depending on the amount of work at the trailhead, we may not get very far up the trail over the weekend, less than 2 miles. The trail switchbacks steeply up the hill.

Project Work: 3/5 Moderately Strenuous- Digging post holes, sign installation. Trail work right from river, brushing out and digging to improve tread and switchbacks.
