Trail Crew

The Mount Washburn Trail on the Dunraven side was recently closed to complete the major rehabilitation of a deteriorating crib wall. To complete the project, the trail crew designed a new wall, contracted a helicopter to fly in and stage materials, fabricated and placed concrete block anchors, and used a highline to maneuver materials and tools into place. The project was completed last week, and they're excited for you to get out there and see the results!

"This was not your typical trail project. We are honored to provide an improved hiker experience and preserve a bit of history. This experience confirms that with teamwork, community, optimism, and perseverance, we can accomplish anything!" - Trails Maintenance Supervisor Cager Messer
