2018-06-16 - 2018-06-17

Join a weekend logout project in the Jefferson Wilderness as we clear the way for the Skyline crew that will be starting a trail reroute project on this section of the PCT a week later. We’ll hike in from the Jack Lake trailhead on Saturday morning, set up camp at Wasco Lake, and start logout work on the PCT at Minto Pass, working our way north. We’ll spend the night at Wasco Lake, and continue our logout work on Sunday. Anticipated arrival back at the trailhead on Sunday is 4:00 PM. One certified B-level crosscut sawyer and four swampers are needed for this project.

Join this pack-supported crew building a brand-new segment of PCT on an open, sunny hillside in the southern Mt. Jefferson Wilderness. You’ll replace a half-mile segment of trail that’s badly eroded due to sub-optimal alignment in loose, post-wildfire 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. An AmeriCorps crew of young adults makes up half the crew, and PCTA volunteers such as yourself make up the other half. Together we’ll make vast improvements to the trail near spectacular Three Fingered Jack.
