Mt. Charleston Wilderness

Enjoy alpine meadows, open vistas, and wildlife while helping build Griffith Peak Trail! Learn more & sign up at: www.nevadawilderness.org/griffith_peak_2019_3 Be a part of the volunteer trail crews that will rebuild Griffith Peak Trail this summer! Sleep under the stars, breathe in the mountain air, experience Mt. Charleston Wilderness up close, and appreciate trails in a new way. Building trail side-by-side with other outdoors lovers is a fun and immensely rewarding way to give back to the places you love. Griffith Peak Trail has been closed since being damaged by wildfire in 2013. Lace up your boots and join us! For this project, we’ll camp along South Loop Trail, 4.2 miles and 2,900 ft. up from the trailhead. Each day we’ll put on our day packs and hike to Griffith Peak Trail. Trailwork will consist of using pick-mattocks and mcleods to cut and level trail tread. There's truly no better way to get to know Mt. Charleston Wilderness! Volunteers for this project must complete a Trailwork Volunteer Application (www.nevadawilderness.org/mtcharleston_volunteer_trail_crew). You only need to fill this form out once a year and will receive a confirmation email within 10 working days of submitting your application. New to overnight trailwork?
