The Wasatch Mountain Wranglers, partnering with the US Forest Service, adopted the heavily used Timpoonek trail on Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. This ~7 mile (each way) trail gains over 4k feet to the 11,750 foot summit of ‘Timp’, and users often find ways to make that trip a little shorter by cutting trail, which can be very damaging to the surrounding environment. In their first official trail work role, a group of Wranglers worked on one of the biggest trail cuts. We’re pretty sure no one will be going that way anymore! Great work!
