Steens Mountain Wilderness Trail Maintenance
September 18 - September 21
In partnership with the Bureau of Land Management’s Burns District, ONDA will improve a portion of the Fred Riddle Trail in the Steens Mountain Wilderness.
The Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Act of 2000 established the Steens Mountain Wilderness Area. The law established more than 170,000 acres as Wilderness, including the iconic Little Blitzen and Big Indian Gorges.
This trip will work to improve visibility of the trail by removing vegetation, installing signage, and other maintenance tasks. The work each day will involve hiking to the project location and using a variety of hand tools to complete trail maintenance work, hiking up to 6 miles per day.
