Where: Decoster Trail.   Allow yourself 30 minutes of drive time from the traffic light in Driggs to this trailhead.

The meeting place will be on the Southern end of the DeCoster Trail where it meets with Dry Ridge Rd (013) and state line.  When Driving from the valley, you will park on Dry Ridge Rd. where you see the Forest Service boundary sign at the Idaho/Wyoming state line.  Plan to meet here at 9am and we will sign you in, give away some raffle prizes, discuss the work day, then hit the trail.



Maintenance details: We will be doing a through hike and clearing the trail of brush and down trees.  We will start from Dry Ridge Rd (013) and work to Rammel Mtn Rd (267) where TVTAP will have a van shuttle waiting.  This is a 5.8 mile hike, and we will be moving slowly trimming vegetation, so be prepared to spend the day out in the woods.  You will have to cross Badger Creek through shin-deep water, so bring an extra pair of socks/shoes if you don’t want wet feet all day.

Meet: Carpooling encouraged.  Meet at the USFS building in Driggs at 8:15AM to carpool or follow us out to the work area.

TVTAP will supply: 

  • Some snacks
  • Tools (feel free to bring your favorite loppers or pruning saw)
  • Basic First Aid Kit
  • Trail maintenance instruction
  • Shuttle van
