2017 Red's Meadow Project  From Bill Carter Trails Coordinator

BCHC and PCTA will come together again to open wilderness trails in Red's Meadow area of the Mammoth Ranger District on the Inyo National Forest. The needs of our Forest Service/Park Service partners will shape the type of work we accomplish. Removing fallen trees with cross cut saws, erecting Administrative Pasture Fencing, tread repair may be required. We may send some crew members for 2 or 3 overnight remote wilderness trail projects.

Red's Meadow Pack Station and Resort (RMPS&R 7600 ft elev) will provide vehicle parking, dispersed camping (tents or RVs), water, corrals, restrooms and showers for crew members. Meals will be provided at main camp and back country camps. Pack stock will be used to haul tools, dunnage and back country kitchen. Weed free forage required for horses/mules. Admission to RMPS&R is complimentary and private vehicles are allowed. View RMPS&R website (link above) for directions and more details of area.

Crew members should supply long pants, long sleeve shirts, eye protection, leather gloves, hard hats, and sturdy foot wear. We will have trail work/jobs for all skill levels. All that we require is a happy, helpful attitude. You’re encouraged to review the attached Job Hazard Analyses (JHAs) prior to the project. Bring your favorite tool for wilderness trail work. For overnighters, wilderness camp gear(+eating utensils) will be needed. If you are short some items (including gloves, eye protection and hard hats), we can provide. We will provide training and supervision from skilled trail members.

Arrival day is Saturday, July 1 (first meal is dinner), departure day is Sunday, July 9 (last meal breakfast). Attend for all or part of the project. For chow planning we need your arrival and departure dates and any special dietary needs.
