Volunteers working on gaps in Continental Divide Trail

14 year-old Casey Cruse uses his pickax to work on the Continental Divide Trail Wednesday

The Continental Divide Trail runs 3100 miles—from Canada all the way to Mexico.

Yet, there are gaps in that trail, where hikers either walk on roads or even across private property. And nowhere is there more gaps than the section crossing Montana—the trail is less than 60 percent complete.

Every year, that percentage inches higher due to the work of volunteers.

Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce takes us to Stemple Pass outside of Helena for this trail crew’s vacation of manual labor.

The Montana Wilderness Association is still seeking volunteers for trail projects later in the Summer. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
