Project Description

In 2021, a wildfire closed the PNT and other popular trails around Mount Bonaparte. With volunteers’ help, we will restore those trails this summer! 

During this trip, there will be opportunities to take a close look at the rebirth of a forest as the succession cycle begins again, and grasses, leafy herbaceous plants and wildflowers begin blanketing the ground.

At this volunteer work party, we’ll restore the western half of Fourth of July Ridge TR 307, or the Cabin TR 303 & Antoine TR 304. As we hike along we will perform spot repairs to the trail’s surface and its drains. And we’ll be on the look out for areas where new plant growth might already be poking up in the trail.

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!
