Hamilton, Montana – Bitter Root Back Country Horsemen (BRBCH) and the Bitterroot National Forest are partnering on a trail clean-up day at the Coyote Coulee Trail #127 on the Darby Ranger District.  The project is scheduled for this Saturday, May 26th from 9am-2pm. 

The group will do general trail maintenance including clearing blow down and general trail repairs.  Coyote Coulee is a popular hiking and horseback riding area that gets heavy use, so hikers and riders should be on alert and watch out for volunteer work crews.  The trail system provides the novice rider (both horse and bicycle) and hikers with a relatively easy trail that is close to Highway 93 and accessible most of the year.

BRBCH was established more than 40 years ago and was one of the first chapters in the nation.  Their goal is to ensure that stock users can continue to access backcountry and wilderness trails.  The club annually contributes over 600 personal hours and 425 stock hours on projects, most on the National Forest, that create significant benefits for all trail users and for the natural resources.
