Trail Work Season is Near

Love this place? Consider volunteering to help maintain it.

If you’ve been in Montana over the past week you’ve felt it. The warm sun hitting your face, the squishy surface beneath your feet, and the energy of the masses exiting hibernation and heading directly for local trailheads. Spring, mud season, whatever-you-call-it is almost here. So is trail work season.

In an effort to provide opportunities for aspiring volunteers to give back to their local trails, Montana Trail Crew will not only be organizing a handful of trail work days on our adopted trail in Missoula’s North Hills (here’s an old post about that), but we’ll also be promoting other trail work days. So if you’re planning a work day and need some volunteers, let us know and we’ll be happy to spread the word and maybe even lend a hand. If you just want to be kept in the loop on upcoming trail work days, send us an email and we’ll add you to our newsletter.

In the meantime, the first Missoula-based trail work day we’re planning to help out with is being organized by a group of retired Smokejumpers. It takes place one month from today on Thursday April 9th from 8-5 pm at Mount Sentinel’s Woodworth Trailhead. If you can make it, great! Just make sure to RSVP with Dave Dayton (dave_dayton[at] ahead of time so they can reserve the appropriate amount of tools. We hope to see you there.

We’ve got a lot of trails!
