Event Description:

It’s a new trail, so there’s lots to do to improve tread. The All Stars helped cut this reclaimed trail along the south side of Big Spar Lake last summer, and its a beautiful walk in the woods. We will be using mostly Pulaskis and pickmattocks on this project, with some silkie work thrown in for good measure.

How to get there:

Take Hwy 200 east from Sandpoint 50 miles ± to Hwy 56 at  “Bull River Junction”.  (About 25 to 30 minutes east of Clark Fork, or about 20 minutes west of Trout Creek).  Turn north on Highway 56, and drive north about 25 miles to the intersection with the Revett Troy Mine Road. (If you get to Little Joe, you have gone a mile too far.) Turn west on the mine road, watching for a small sign on the right pointing to Spar Lake. Follow this road to FS Road #384 (the next intersection). Go left and follow signs to Spar Lake. Drive past the Spar Lake campground four miles on a lightly maintained FS road to the trailhead.
