Friday evening (22nd) the crew will drive up to a bunkhouse and stay overnight. Saturday the crew will be shuttled to the end of Clearwater and will hike 1.5 miles to the Gogebic Lake Camp. After setting up a camp, the rest of the day will be spent trail clearing. Trail clearing will continue through Sunday. The crew will hike/shuttle out and return home on Monday (Memorial Day). Tax deductible trip fee of $60 includes carpool transportation and food, with the exception of meals on the drive up and back.
If anyone would like to go up a day or two earlier, please contact Tom S. This earlier group will make sure we get the campsite we want.
Registration must be completed at www.borderroutetrail.org and consists of selecting your trip, answering some basic experience questions, and reading and signing the liability waiver. Fee payment can be made by using a credit card to the BRTA account on PayPal or by sending a check.
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 two person saws, one person saws, loppers, and scythes. Trail clearing tools and paddling equipment will be provided. A suggested personal gear list will be provided and carpool arrangements developed once registrations start coming in.
