Memorial Day Spikeout

Memorial Day Spikeout

16 MAY 2013 | KALMIOPSIS WILDERNESS AREA — It’s not too late to spend your Memorial Day Weekend in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness making a real difference.

We still have a few spots left on our crew heading out to the Babyfoot Lake Trailhead on Saturday, May 25. From there we’ll bacpack in no more than 5-miles to our camp.

We’ll be working on the Trans-Kalmiopsis Route, on sections that have filled in with logs and brush since we started working there in 2010. On Monday morning we’ll hike out, and be back to the trailhead no later than 2pm.

This could be your view on Memorial Day Weekend

This section of the Kalmiopsis offers unprecedented views into the Chetco River’s vast headwaters, and a chance to get to know the best way into the river’s pristine, upper reaches with experienced crew leaders.

Participants need the following gear:

  • Large backpack
  • Lightweight sleeping bag
  • Long pair of sturdy pants
  • Long-sleeved shirt to work in
  • Work gloves
  • Appropriate clothes for weather
  • Sturdy shoes with strong ankle support
  • Mat for sleeping on
  • Personal tent (optional) 

This Memorial Day is your chance to have a real adventure and make a real difference. This trip is pack-supported, so you don’t have to carry food in.
