On the Tevis Cup Trail (TCT) in Granite Chief Wilderness (GCW), there are identified problematic trail alignment concerns including soil erosion and user safety. The TCT crosses through a series of sensitive sub-alpine riparian zones where the trail presents heavy soil erosion and concentrated runoff. The TCT in GCW is used as a competitive event route for both the Western States Endurance Run and the Western States Endurance Ride (separate 100 mile run and equestrian events) that occur in the spring and summer. TCT alignment travels through a series of alpine wetland “bogs” that are eroding. Project will consist of a trail reroute trails involving two steps constructing the trail alignment, mostly above tree line; and (2) diverting users to the newly aligned trail segment and discouraging use of the decommissioned route.

The Granite Chief re-route will be a 14 week project with a crew of 20-20 people. This will require a manger for camp logistics and food for the trail crews. The Camp manager will work alongside 2 crew leads.
