Wilderness Trail Crew Members (2 positions based out of Fenn Ranger Station for 18 year olds):

Now hiring 2 youth to assist the Forest Service Wilderness Trail Crew in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. These Wilderness Trail Crew members will clear trail and brush while sawing, pruning, digging, and hiking to reach trail locations in the Wilderness. This is an incredible opportunity for a dedicated 18 year old looking for experience in natural resources. In addition to learning while you work, you will have professional development and soft skills training, including CPR/First Aid, resume writing, interview practice, networking, and more!


Hiring for the Wilderness Trail Crew is handled separately from the Youth Crew Members due to the specialized requirements of the position. Please have any interested students review the RFQ  thoroughly and contact me with questions. Hiring will be done for these positions in close coordination with the USFS.

Application process for Wilderness Trail Crew (see attached RFQ):

Interested applicants should submit a resume and cover letter that answers the following questions:

  • Why do you want to be a member of the CBYCC Wilderness Trail Crew?
  • What experience do you have that will assist you in being a successful member of the Wilderness Trail Crew?
  • Working on a Wilderness Trail Crew requires being able to go for long periods of time without a lot of human interaction in very remote places. Explain how you feel you will be suited to this type of situation.
