Backpack Across the Thompson Divide
Saturday, Sunday, and Monday September 1-3, 2018.
Free and open to the public, registration required.
Join the Wilderness Workshop on a three day, two-night backpacking trip through the heart of the Thompson Divide. This 3-day hike is wonderfully scenic and is characterized by rushing streams, giant aspen groves, and expansive views of the Elk Mountains. Our walk will begin on Four Mile Rd. and end on the south side of the divide, near Redstone. Experience for yourself why locals are “Unified for the Thompson Divide,” and have rallied to maintain the area’s clean water, air, abundant wildlife, and recreational opportunities.
