High-Lonesome (Devil's Thumb) with CDTC *Event Full*
July 9 @ 8:00 am - July 10 @ 4:00 pm
Join HTA and our friends at the Continental Divide Trail Coalition to continue restoration work on the High-Lonesome Trail near Devil's Thumb. After removing hundreds of down trees last year after a catastrophic wind event we will refocus to tread restoration, drainage improvements, and check dam installation. The area we will be focusing on will be where the blowdown starts about 2 miles from the TH to where the trail meets the Continental Divide. This section of the trail is very popular among backpackers, day-hikers, and through-hikers alike and is a critical connection point on the greater Continental Divide Trail. This will be a two-day project and volunteers are needed to assist in drainage construction, trail surface restoration, and moving heavy logs/rocks for check dam installation. Please email [email protected] or [email protected] if you are interested in joining this effort.
