Into the woods

The East Fork Trail, No. 27, winds up a hillside from the Box Canyon Guard Station to Lake Plateau — a popular hiking destination. However, a rotting bridge and multiple water bars on the trail were in desperate need of repair. To expedite the job, the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Foundation (ABWF) stepped up to the plate, recruiting a band of volunteers to assist U.S. Forest Service trail crews from Aug. 13 to Aug. 17.
