One Week on the Bigfoot Trail

One week on the Bigfoot Trail

With one week to go on our Kickstarter, we wanted to feature a one-week hike on the trail that is in need of some love right now. As a matter of fact, it is only hikeable if you are willing to endure some serious bushwhacking and slow navigation. Like one-mile-an-hour (or less) slow!

The section labeled #1 is being studied as a potential reroute from road walking to trail rebuilding. You can read more in this post by Justin Rohde about the work that will be done to make this a reality.

The section labeled #2 is just in rough shape. It has been on the forest service’s radar for over 5 years, but do to various circumstances, has not yet been maintained. We are proposing to team up with the forest service this summer to assist in clearing this section of trail. Your contribution to the kickstarter will help us with this!

    I’d be interested in helping with either section. I’m retired, was going to do the JMT this summer, but have had to put it off for another year. So I have lots of new found time. Oftentimes when I’m hiking I wonder who made the trail I’m on, and when and how. And thanks for doing it. Here’s an opportunity for me to pay my share.
