Updated Meeting Location : Purjue Canyon Trailhead and parking area on Mad Flat Road.  At the following coordinates  42.739553, -116.314314  or google map directions from “Boise.”  There is a new gravel parking area on the left hand side, approx. 1.6 miles past the Poison Creek Picnic Area

This is a one-day project constructing a re-route of the Purjue Canyon Trail in the Owyhees. Featuring wildflowers, rugged canyons, and an abandoned homestead, this is a spectacular canyon with plenty to see. The project will be removing the trail from the riparian area and relocating it to the drier side of the canyon, as well as continuing our work to brush and re-establish tread. ITA has been working on the Purjue Canyon Trail for several years in partnership with the BLM. Join us for National Trails Day on one of the only trails in the Little Jacks Creek Wilderness Area!

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.

More Information: All Trails, blog from the 2018 project

Estimated Drive Time to Meeting Spot: 1.5 Hours from Boise, 15 miles south of Grand View Idaho
