July 25/26, 2015 Hum Lake Trail, Payette National Forest, McCall, Idaho
Work details: Join us for an overnight work party high in mountains above McCall clearing the trail above Hum Lake. We will meet at the Duck Lake Trailhead at Lick Creek Summit at 9am Saturday July 25th. We will hike up to Hum Lake and drop off our packs and start clearing the trail to the North Fork of Lick Creek. Our goal is to start rebuilding the switchbacks and trail tread above Hum Lake. This is a strenuous hike at high elevation, but well worth the effort!
Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch will be provided by ITA. Dinner will be prepared by “The Wild Chef” Steve Weston!
Let’s have fun and be safe. This project is difficult physically as we will be at higher elevation and climbing over a high pass to get to Hum Lake. The return trip goes back over the pass and down to the trailhead. The distance hiking as about 6 miles round trip, plus the hiking around the project.
Volunteers needed: 10 volunteers. If your plans change and you cannot make it. Please notify us & attempt to fill the project with another volunteer.
When/Where: We will meet at the Duck Lake Trailhead at Lick Creek Summit at 9am. We will have our safety meeting, sign in and then head up the trail. We should be back to the trailhead Sunday afternoon by 4pm.
What to bring: All volunteers should bring their own camp gear for overnight, large backpack, Saturday’s lunch, snacks, sunscreen, and water. Volunteers should have hiking boots, leather work gloves, and eye protection (sunglasses or safety glasses). ITA will provide the tools.
Project leaders: Jeff Halligan with the ITA
