About The Event

This trip has been described as a "slog", "Type 2 fun", "AWESOME!", "damp", and much more...

If you like a bit of a challenge, this is an amazing opportunity to spend time at the beautiful and remote Shrode Lake. Volunteers will be dropped off with a Forest Service crew at Long Bay and will backpack with personal gear and group items to Shrode Lake cabin (1 mile), where volunteers will stay 3 nights for free. Crews will focus on brushing and clearing vegetation between the cabin and 3-finger cove. This involves lopping, brushing, hand-sawing, and/or using a polaski to clear the trail. Volunteers are encouraged to use tools that are most compatibale with ability and comfort. 

Volunteers are welcome bring pack rafts to explore Shrode Lake or use the jon boat near the cabin. 

  • Two Chugach National Forest employees will lead this work project.
  • Participants will work under volunteer agreement with the Chugach National Forest and be provided all tools, materials, and personal protective equipment. Safety training will be provided.
  • Food and camping gear are not provided.
  • A nonrefundable $125 registration fee is required to reserve your spot.

Trip Difficulty: Difficult- Do you like Type 2 fun? This is 100% the trip for you! You'll hike along uneven surfaces, remove brush, and other light to moderate activity. Accessing the cabin involves a hike in on an unmaintained trail while carrying your own gear and food, plus trail maintenance equipment.
