Volunteers Sign the Way to Heart Lake

In partnership with the Forest Service, a crew of 24 (13 volunteers, 7 Forest Service staff, and 4 MSTA board members) got up early to install signs on the newly upgraded trail from Castle Lake to Heart Lake. Prior to the recent acquisition by the Forest Service of a 637-acre parcel of land from the Wilderness Land Trust, the MSTA improved the trail to Heart Lake last summer and today installed signs on that trail.

This was no easy walk in the woods, as the crew had to haul water, dry-mix concrete, steel sign posts, signs and tools up the trail. And then to top it off, holes had to be dug in the rocky terrain for each sign post. Many thanks to all the hard workers for improving this popular trail.
