Hike 8.5 miles from the Powwow trailhead north and west towards rugged South Wilder Lake, where the final 2018 crew left off. Mark and clear trail through thick new jack pine growth in a section that has not seen hikers since 2016.
This very demanding trail clearing trip will clear the densest jack pine growth on the Powwow Trail. Our mission is canoe about 10 miles to BWCAW interior and then to dispatch treefalls and new growth on about 0.5 to 1 mile of overgrown trail using hand saws and loppers. It maybe painful but through your unselfish investment in time you will create a tangible wilderness value for the society.
