Project Description: Travel into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness on foot! The Angleworm Hiking Trail is a 13.5-mile loop around Angleworm Lake.

Days will be spent working alongside Forest Service staff, clearing small trees and brush to ensure the trail remains open to hikers. Volunteers will backpack into the Wilderness to camp at one of the sites on the hiking trail, at least 2 miles.
