Line Creek Basin, Trail #9
Apr 28, 2022 – May 2, 2022
Close to: Clark (WY), Cody (WY), Red Lodge (MT)
Spots Available: 4/9
Description: While car camping at the Line Creek Basin Trailhead, right on the Montana/Wyoming border, we will make a short, 1 mile hike each day to the worksite. Compared to the rest of the Absaroka and Beartooth mountain ranges, this east flank of the Beartooths receives relatively little snow, as it plunges from the Line Creek Plateau at 10,500 ft to the Bighorn Basin at 4,200 ft. This drier climate and lower elevation allows us to offer this project in the Spring, a rare opportunity for ABWF volunteers.
Local volunteers are welcome to commute to the worksite each day, however the road requires AWD and clearance for a creek crossing close to the trailhead. For folks staying at the campsite all week, we can shuttle volunteers as needed. Work: On this project, we will be widening the tread of the Line Creek Trail as it climbs toward Line Creek Plateau. We will also be rerouting a short section of this trail that ties in with an old road bed.
Difficulty: Moderately strenuous. We will be car camping for this project, and the hike is short to the worksite each day. However since we will be digging trail in rocky country, the work is a little more strenuous than on some of our other projects.
Meeting time & location: 8:00 a.m. on April 28 at the Edelweiss River House. We will caravan to the trailhead together.
Unfortunately, you cannot sign up for this project (anymore).
