Missoula Trail Workers Group
Exchange information, connect with other trail workers, and find or suggest projects to work on.
This group is open to those who have decent trail maintenance experience or have completed our chainsaw certification course. Just hit "Apply for membership" and tell us about yourself. Thanks for the interest!
Tread work ranges from clearing water bars and removing brake bumps to building jumps and berms, depending on the project.
These days generally last about half a day and are located closer to town (Marshall, Rattlesnake, Sentinel, Dean Stone)
There’s often lighter work available for those who want to be involved but prefer not to dig.
Tuesday Night Digs
For a couple months a year, we organize evening digs on whatever project near town that needs some extra work.
In 2019 we'll be branching out from our usual location at Marshall, so look for updates on the top of this page in June and July.
On clearing days, we generally set up an early morning shuttle and then ride a trail point-to-point, clearing all trees along the way. These are long but extremely rewarding days.
We always need swampers (swampers remove smaller trees with a hand saw and help the sawyer pull cut logs off the trail) and brushers (using weedwhackers or loppers), so if you’re not a sawyer you can still be an integral part of the clearing days.
We train and certify our volunteer sawyers with a USFS-approved course. It's a great way to develop your skills and safety while giving back to the trails. Certification is required to saw on our workdays.
