Continuing our work from last year, ITA volunteers will conduct trail maintenance on the Little Queens River trail in the Sawtooth Wilderness, near Atlanta, ID. Plan to meet Friday afternoon/evening where we’ll camp together for the weekend near the trailhead. On Saturday and Sunday, we will hike up the trail, clearing out down trees as we go. This trail is part of the Queens River Loop, a backpacking trail in the Sawtooth Wilderness. With lots of reports of downed trees over the trail, this trail needs some love in the form of a crew and some crosscut saws!
Difficulty Rating: 2 – Moderate: Day trip trail work is performed a small to medium distance from a trailhead. Volunteers will carry a daypack and tools.

Estimated Drive Time to Meeting Spot: 3.5 hours from Boise
Road Considerations: Access is from the Middle Fork Boise River Road, which can be narrow and may be rough. The road is passable for safe drivers either from Boise, Idaho City, or Atlanta.
