Flowing out of Yosemite runs the South Fork of the Merced River, along which an old trail winds through lands wilder than those in Yosemite.  

We're an adventure-based non-profit group that hosts trail and camping "stewardship trips" along the South Fork of the Merced River in Mariposa County, with a mission to repair and maintain this trail, while offering opportunities for locals to get outdoors, experience nature, learn about and add to the cultural history of the area, and to give back in the form of trail-work.  

 Outings occur throughout the year and can be day-trips or multi-day excursions for small or large groups.  

Though many trail-work days are set (see list below), customized trips can be crafted for your group.

1- Kistler-Grapevine/June 11, 12, 13
2- South Fork Trail/October 12, 13, 14, 15, 16
3- West of Devil's Canyon/November 17 & 18
4- Hite's Cove Trail/December 15, 16, 17

- Contact me to help you create a stewardship outing for your group.

- We operate under an umbrella organization- The Upper Merced River Watershed Council.
