Griffith Peak Trail Rebuild 6!
September 19 @ 9:00 am - September 22 @ 4:00 pm
Camp on high slopes in Mt. Charleston Wilderness and help rebuild the Griffith Peak Trail!
Be a part of the volunteer trail crews that will rebuild Griffith Peak Trail this summer! Sleep under the stars, breathe in the mountain air, experience Mt. Charleston Wilderness up close, and appreciate trails in a new way. Building trail side-by-side with other outdoors lovers is a fun and immensely rewarding way to give back to the places you love. Lace up your boots and join us!
For this project, we’ll camp along South Loop Trail, 4.2 miles and 2,900 ft. up from the trailhead. Each day we’ll put on our day packs and hike to Griffith Peak Trail. Trailwork will consist of using pick-mattocks and mcleods to cut and level trail tread. There’s truly no better way to get to know Mt. Charleston Wilderness! This project doesn’t require any prior trailwork experience. You’ll receive a safety and training session before working, including proper techniques and tool use. We hope you can join us for the whole hitch, but you can also come for as little as two days.
What You’ll Need – Sturdy closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt are required for this project. You’ll need a day pack and the capacity to carry at least 3 liters of water. You’re responsible for your own camping gear and snacks as well as transportation to and from the project. Because there’s limited packing space, we’ll be asking some volunteers for this project to use tents that have already been packed up the trail.
