Project Description

Albert Camp Trail offers a pleasant, wildflower studded ascent up the spine of Horseshoe Mountain, before it ties in with Irongate-Boundary TR 533, which is a popular feeder trail for equestrians accessing the PNT at Horseshoe Pass.  Albert Camp itself is a viable feeder route to or detour for the PNT in the Pasayten Wilderness, and can be part of a loop adventure with other trails in the area.

Volunteers may want to sneak off for an afternoon jaunt up the ridge to take in sweeping views of the surrounding peaks.  Meanwhile, this trail crew will work in vicinity of Deer Park TR 341, where Albert Camp Trail starts to switch its way up to the ridge.

Help clear a path by joining this party as a “swamper” who follows behind sawyers, rolling log rounds and tossing branches off the trail.  Take turns on the end of a crosscut saw as we maintain a corridor through the Wilderness. Use loppers or handsaws to trim back brush, saplings and branches growing in the corridor, and dirt work tools to repair the tread and clear drains along the way.  

No trail crew experience necessary: the PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your daypack, and a thirst for a rewarding day on the trail!

About Drop-in Work Parties

“Drop-in” volunteers make a difference by boosting the capacity of a PNTA Performance Crew. The crew works on site for the duration of the trip, but volunteers are welcome to participate for as long as they like.

Meals are available for multi-day participants who register early enough for us to include them in meal plans.  (See Meals deadline in Project Details, above.)
