Notes: SBBCH provided pack support for a wilderness trail crew working  trails in the Sawtooth wilderness. I was a last minute addition and went up for the first part of the project. Packed in Saturday – had to turn around due to bad trail and try another trail the next day. Two of the riders (Jon and Terry) headed back  home Saturday evening leaving Rob and 5 women.  Sunday we went up via Iron Creek TH and made it to the rendezvous site at the greater Sawtooth Lake, elevation 8530. Likely the most wickedly technical trails I’ve ridden. Absolutely gorgeous. My only regret is I couldn’t stay the entire week and help pack them out.
