Hike Location: Kading Campground, Upper Little Blackfoot River

Hike Leader: Kevin Moore, MWA Helena Chapter President, and Bill Hallinan, Helena Chapter Member

Hike Length: 8 Miles

Hike Description: Meet at Kading Cabin, near the end of the Little Blackfoot Rd. on the other side of Mac Pass, to see what MWA’s trail stewardship team is doing to preserve wildlands while helping to build new trail opportunities. We will hike approximately four-level miles each way along the stream to the beautiful Little Blackfoot Meadows while discussing MWA’s involvement with the High Divide Trails Coalition, and the re-route of the Kading Grade trail. This project is a collaborative agreement between different trail users to help foot, bike, and horse users access the Cliff Mountain trail on the crest of the Boulder Mountains. The corridor for the re-routed trail has been cleared, but there is no trail dug yet, and depending on skills and interest, there will be an opportunity to explore this steep route to the top of the ridge and enjoy spectacular views.
