The nonprofit organization Idaho Trails Association is looking for hikers who are interested in helping on one-day, weekend and week-long projects throughout the summer to maintain trails in northern Idaho.

No experience is needed to participate and hikers of all levels are encouraged to join. All tools and training will be provided at the start of the trip.

ITA has projects planned throughout the state and 14 scheduled in northern Idaho for summer 2020. Here are three projects:

Long Canyon- July 6-11

A six-day backpacking trail project in the wildest canyon in northern Idaho. Hike in about six miles over Pyramid pass and work the upper end of this remote and scenic trail. Camp right by the creek and do tread work, brushing, and drainage improvement.

Blacktail Lake- Women’s Only Weekend – August 22-23

On this WOW Weekend, there will be brushing, drainage, and tread work on this three-mile trail to beautiful Blacktail Lake.
