Suce Creek West & Suce Creek--National Trails Day

Location:  Livingston    Meet at:  Yellowstone Ranger Station @ 8:30 a.m.

Description:  Our group will spend the day improving the tread on the new Suce West Trail #450.  There are some sections of trail that need to be rerouted and cut afresh and equipped with signage, and if we have enough folks show up, we will split into two groups and send some folks up the main Suce Creek Trail to clear the trail.  We need a sizeable group for this one! 

Special Considerations:  After work we will plan to celebrate National Trails Day at a Livingston establishment.

East Rosebud Weed Pull

Location:  Roscoe/Alpine         

Meet at:  E. Rosebud Trailhead Parking lot @ 9:00 a.m.

Description:  It's time to head back up the A-B Wilderness's most popular trail and hunt down any noxious weeds we find there.  In the past we have found a lot of Canada Thistle and have kept ahead of the Knapweed along the first 2 miles of the E. Rosebud Trail.  Help us locate and pull any invasives we find.  We will be both pulling weeds manually, and chemically spraying to ensure we keep the upper hand!

Special Considerations:  Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirt and definitely gloves. We provide protective clothing to anyone who wants to assist us with spraying.  Bring a lunch and snacks.  Cold drinks provided!

Public Lands Day—Nichols Creek II 

Location:  Red Lodge          

Meet at:  Lower Parking @ Red Lodge Mt. Ski Area @ 9:00 a.m.

Description:  There’s still quite a bit of trail tread to cut and widen and smooth out before we can say we are done with the Nichols Creek Trail.  When you discover how amazing this trail is going to be, you’ll want to help us finish it off. 

Special Considerations:  Show how much you appreciate your public lands by volunteering on this exciting new Forest Service trail!  Volunteers get a free drink at Sam’s Taproom afterwards!
