The wilderness sections of the Border Route Trail run above and along several border lakes and provide spectacular overlooks to those lakes. Trail clearing consists of removing brush and downed trees and in the wilderness is done with hand tools: crosscut saws, loppers, scythes, and others. A general description of the trip is that on the Thursday evening of the trip, the crew will drive up to campsite or a bunkhouse and stay overnight. Friday the crew will paddle to a campsite on the lake associated with the trip, setup a base camp and spend the rest of the day trail clearing on the BRT. Trail clearing will continue on Saturday and the crew will paddled out and return home on Sunday. Trip fee of $60 includes transportation and food, with the exception of meals on the drive up and back. Please go the sign up page of the Border Route Trail web site to register for a trip.
