Five Months in the Backcountry Will Last a Lifetime
After five months living and working off-the-grid in California’s most scenic, and rural, places the Backcountry Trails Program crews returned home.
Their successes from places like Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Inyo, Shasta-Trinity, Klamath, and Stanislaus include:
- 9,548 feet of newly constructed trail
- 174 miles of trail maintenance;
- 232 new steps
- 1,656 square feet of multi-tier built
The bigger success is the Corpsmembers’ personal achievements and development.
Whether it was improving themselves, stepping out of their comfort zones, building a community, or re-affirming who they are as people; every Backcountry Corpsmember walks away with something, that and an exclusive hat.
