Deep Creek Mountains
August 1 - August 3
The Deep Creek Mountains, officially the Deep Creek Range (Goshute: Pi’a-roi-ya-bi), are a mountain range in the Great Basin located in extreme western Tooele County and Juab County, Utah, in the western United States. The range trends north-south, 84% in Utah and 16% in Nevada, and is mainly composed of granite. Multiple canyons feature perennial creeks running west to east. The valley to the east is Snake Valley and to the west is Deep Creek Valley. Sites of cultural significance are found throughout the lush riparian corridors.
Our crew will work to rehabilitate and restore wilderness characteristics through a series of approaches, including: reclaiming surface impacts and repairing previously-established boundary signage and barriers.
Work tasks will vary by need, and are slated to include:
- fence and WSA boundary sign installation;
- vertical mulching and track/tread raking;
- manual reclamation (with hand tools) of visually disturbed surface
Volunteers Needed: (8)
Project Lead: Jeremy Lynch
A comprehensive itinerary will be provided to registered volunteers.

Level 3 – Heavy lifting, high-elevation, remote travel, and extended durations away from common conveniences. Leave No Trace principles are essential during all of our trips but require the most thought and planning at Level 3. These trips may involve on-site training for technical skills and tool use. Excellent physical fitness is a must at this level.
