Hunt Camp Trail

Improving sustainability, reducing erosion, and improving visitor safety.


Upper Hunt Camp Trail Work Complete

Work is complete on the Upper Hunt Camp Trail. This trail is open to visitors. Due to the sensitive nature of the ecosystem, all work was done with hand tools.

Project Description

As originally proposed, this project consisted of three parts: improvements to Upper Hunt Camp Trail, improvements to Lower Hunt Camp Trail, and a connector trail. The project was identified as a priority project in the 2015 road and trail designation process.

A section of Upper Hunt Camp, formerly a narrow and unimproved ridgetop trail, was re-routed and the grade improved to create a more stable and sustainable trail. The highly erosive portions of trail were decommissioned. Drainage improvements were also implemented to alleviate chronically wet conditions and reduce erosion.

There is currently no timeline for the Lower Hunt Camp part of the project.
