Red Bluff BCRT: Saving Trails in Colville National Forest
Take a look at what a WTA volunteer crew can accomplish in four days! This 10-person crew replaced a worn-out bridge with a sturdy new turnpike on the Red Bluff Trail in the Colville National Forest.
Recently, a group of tenacious WTA volunteers made gorgeous improvements on a Backcountry Response Team (BCRT) at the Red Bluff trail in Colville National Forest. Over four days, they replaced a worn-out bridge on the Red Bluff Trail with a 25-foot structure known as a turnpike. This new trail structure will keep hikers' and horses' feet dry as they explore this trail near the scenic Shedroof Divide.
Dave Drum with the Forest Service in the Colville was impressed by the work that was done. In fact, he told crew leader Holly Weiler, "Your crew did an excellent job on the Red Bluff project. Hope you had fun, I'm very impressed, come work on our forest anytime!"
Assistant crew leader Todd Dunfield documented the fun and great work; check out his pictures below.
