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.
