Join Our Trail Crew

Get your hands dirty maintaining trails in the Badger-Two Medicine.
Every summer, our volunteer trail crew spends a week improving  trails in the Badger-Two Medicine. This fun, rewarding experience is a great way to make a difference,  to meet other amazing people, or to experience this tribally-significant  area of the national forest.  Volunteers may clear downed trees, remove brush, dig drains, improve tread or clean up campsites. Whatever the task, your effort will help keep trails open, reduce hazards, and lighten recreational impacts on the land.
Our annual trail maintenance project is led by a professional crew leader from the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation and a staff member from Glacier-Two Medicine Alliance. No experience is necessary to volunteer. Trip leaders will teach all the skills and techniques necessary to travel in the backcountry and to accomplish the job!

Summer 2024 Project:

The Glacier-Two Medicine Alliance and BMWF are teaming up to bring some much needed love to an overgrown trail in the Badger-Two Medicine. Your crew will be using crosscut and hand saws to work on clearing the neglected trail #136. Once cleared, your crew will work with loppers and hand saws to brush out the trail, making it more accessible to public users. Enjoy a day off mid-week to explore this beautiful area, relax and recharge. BMWF will provide all food, tools and group gear.

Volunteers Make a Difference!

Whether it’s a family outing to gather berries, a day hike with friends, or a multi-day backpack or horse trip, trails in the Badger-Two Medicine provide critical access for both recreational and tribal cultural purposes. Unfortunately, many trails are in poor shape or hard to follow due to extensive blowdown, encroaching vegetation, or erosion. The U.S. Forest Service does not currently have the capacity to maintain all these trails alone. Volunteers are vital to keep these trails open and the area accessible!
