Join ICL for a cleanup day at Vineyard Lake in the Snake River Canyon! As hidden as it is, Vineyard Lake sees a lot of recreationists – and the land there is feeling the impact. ICL and volunteers will meet at the trailhead, hike in together, and pick up trash in the area. Following the cleanup, we will eat lunch and hear from ICL’s Senior Conservation Associate, Josh Johnson, about the current state of the beloved Snake River. Space is limited, so RSVP today to secure your spot!
Trail condition: The trail begins on top of the canyon rim, passing through protected private property that is managed as active pastureland with livestock. From there, the path winds to the edge of the canyon before going down the canyon and over/around crumbled rocks. The 1.5-mile roundtrip hike takes about an hour and has a total elevation gain/drop of roughly 200 feet. A moderate level of physical fitness is required for this hike due to the nature of the terrain.
What to bring: Lunch, sun protection, plenty of water, sturdy hiking shoes, gardening or latex gloves.
