Maxon Meadows Trail to Chamberlain Meadows Camp

This work helps the Forest Service with much-needed maintenance in the Ansel Adams and John Muir Wilderness areas. As a result, the improved trails and safety measures will benefit the user and the commercial interests in the area. On the Maxon Meadow Trail, the existing causeway is dangerously damaged and failing; as a result, users are reluctant to cross it, so multiple trails have been created to avoid using the causeway. Removing the causeway and locating the trail to a more durable surface will mitigate this adverse impact by preventing multiple trails through the wetland and confining use to that more durable surface, preventing further damage.

Applicant: Back Country Horsemen of California
Project Location: High Sierra Ranger District, Sierra National Forest, California
Amount Awarded: $7,500.00

At Maxon Meadows Trail, remove 1/2 mile of causeway and route the trail across a more durable surface to protect the wetland area. Clear and maintain 4 additional miles of trail accessing Chamberlain Meadows Camp, an access point for the John Muir Wilderness.

Volunteers will clear and maintain the trail corridor along 17.5 miles of FS system trails in the Edison Lake area, some of which access the heavily used Pacific Coast Trail. USFS Wilderness staff and commercial pack station personnel will help with the work in the Edison Lake Area.

This work will begin in June, 2022 and be completed by August, 2022.
