May 3 Volunteer In The Kalmiopsis

This Saturday The Weather Will Be Perfect


To Hike Here

This Saturday, May 3 we’re heading up to the Babyfoot Lake Trailhead. From there we’ll hike about five difficult miles into the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. Then we’ll spend the day on heavy brushing projects about halfway between Babyfoot and the Chetco.

Come challenge yourself and see a wilder, unconfined side of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. This is a long day trip catered to those looking to push themselves and find a genuine wilderness experience. You need to be in good physical shape and have an adventurous attitude for this project.

You’ll see a lot of wild country in one day and experience the gratification of working on a more advanced, technical project. Hike through skeleton forests and over serpentine mountain ridges.

It’s rare that this section of the Trans-Kalmiopsis Route isn’t either socked in by rain or blazing hot. But this Saturday we should have perfect weather!

We’ll leave Ashland, OR at 7 a.m. and be back to the trailhead by 7 p.m. Call 541-708-2056 or email for details and to sign-up.

  1. I’m posting a Meetup with my group, Happy Hikes around Hwy 199, to join you with this trail maintenance. I don’t know if any will sign up and/or join. It’s just an attempt to offer another choice to my group, and do something positive to the trails we love so much. I’m based here in Grants Pass. I’ve announced to my group to meet here in GP at 8:00am. Where and when should we meet you? At Babyfoot Trailhead? Or over at Eagle Mtn. Trailhead? Let me know. Should we bring equipment? What should we bring? I know plenty of water and snacks and such but what should we bring equipment wise to help. Thanks for all you help and understanding with what I’m trying to do, Pete.
