The crew will meet at the B Bar C Ranch near Meyers Cove Sunday for a packing clinic/demo Monday from Middle Fork Outfitters. On Tuesday pack stock will help the crew pack into camp. Volunteers will only need to carry personal gear. Project work will go up the West Fork Camas Creek Trail to the junction with Woodtick Ridge Trail, which connects back to Camas Creek making a loop. The work is mostly logging out, with some brush cutting and tread work. Each evening, we’ll return to camp to relax and share meals together, with food provided and prepared by ITA volunteers.
Difficulty Rating: 3 – Difficult: Hike long distances from the trailhead, with elevation gain and stream crossings– this is an overnight backpacking trip. Support of an outfitter or pack assistance is available.
Estimated Drive Time to Meeting Spot: 2.5 hours from Challis.
Road Considerations: Dirt road in generally good condition, AWD recommended. The last 1/2 mile to the Outfitter camp for the clinic requires a creek crossing/ford. Last year we met at Meyers Cove then carpooled across the creek.
Refundable deposit: $75
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. 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 need assistance paying the project fee, please contact us and we will waive the fee.
