June 20 – Bitterroot Hike in Dubois
Hike Description: Join Dubois’ favorite locals, Meredith Taylor and Lynn Stewart, for a wildflower hike in the East Fork area of Fremont County, jointly hosted by the National Bighorn Sheep Center and WYNPS. We hope phenology cooperates for a stunning display of bitterroot, but we may also have opportunities to check out blazing star, Prince’s plume, indian paintbrush, and others! This fairly easy uphill hike will reach an elevation of about 8,000′. Please bring your lunch, water, sun protection, bug spray, and bear spray.
Time and Place: Caravan will begin from the National Bighorn Sheep Center, 10 Bighorn Lane, Dubois at 10AM. Alternatively, participants can meet the caravan at the East Fork Road turnoff of Hwy 26/287 10 miles east of Dubois, shortly after 10 am. From there we will caravan to the hike location on the East Fork. The hike will begin at 11 am and go until approximately 1 pm.
Registration: This hike is free, but registration is required. Hike is open to members of WYNPS or the National Bighorn Sheep Center. Please email info@bighorn to register and for more details.
