Location

We will be working on the CDNST near Wolf Creek Pass in between Southfork and Pagosa Springs. 

The Lobo Overlook, where we will meet and camp, is above Wolf Creek Pass and provides very easy access to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail making it very popular for everything from short day hikes, weekend backpacks, and of course CDNST through hikers.

Lobo is accessed via an unpaved road but is apropriate for most two wheel drive passenger vehicles. 

Both the camp and worksites will be above 10,000'
