Description

Backcountry Trails Program (BCTP) members spend over five months based at remote wilderness locations throughout California performing physically demanding manual labor in a variety of intense conditions, and living in a tight-knit and diverse community.

In addition to trail work, members participate in regular camp chores, position-related training, physical training, daily curriculum and education, environmental awareness, cooperative living skills, and exploration of surrounding wilderness areas.

It is not a prerequisite that members know how to do trail work or that they are exceptionally strong. However, it is essential that members are willing to work very hard to produce quality work with minimal direct supervision while following important safety guidelines.
