Volunteer group: PCTA
Agency: Willamette National Forest: Detroit RD
Crew leader Justin Brimer
Elevation (ft) 6870
Project description: Join this pack-supported crew building a brand-new segment of PCT amongst the spectacular sub-alpine meadows of Mt. Jefferson Wilderness. You’ll replace a small segment of trail that's badly eroded due to sub-optimal alignment in fragile soils. Constructing new trail means dirt digging, root chopping, brush clearing, and rock moving. There’s some artistry to it, and plenty of tangible satisfaction. Enjoy a half day off in the middle of the tour to explore the area. Together we’ll make vast improvements to the trail in the high country, with Mt. Jefferson looming overhead.
