Annual spring maintenance trip on the Border Route Trail (a unit of the NPS’s North Country National Scenic Trail) This trip will focus on the non-wilderness west 17 mile section near Gunflint Lake. We will hike with daypack and tools (hand saws, lobbers, chainsaws (for those with NPS or USFS sawyer certification) and brush cutters) to clear the trail of winter deadfalls and brush. BRT is a rugged wilderness trail on the Canadian border – come prepared for cool or wet early May weather . Lots of hiking on the BRT overlooking famous Gunflint Lake is expected.
Vehicle camping (tent) possibly along the Cross River or a USFS campground if open.
As an added bonus we will install the New North Country National Scenic Trail signage along the BRT from the gunflint trail to Bridal Falls and the entrance to the BWCA portion of BRT.
Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday plus dinner on Friday and Saturday is included ( two breakfasts, two dinners). Lunch and snacks are on your own. Be prepared for cool evenings and moderate day work conditions near the Canadian border.
