French Pete Trail
June 13, 1982
We hiked up the trail approximately a mile and a half before beginning our
trail maintenance work.
Since French Pete is in a designated wilderness, we are unable to use our chain
saw so most of our work was done with sna-viks, bow saws and pruners.
The larger trees will be contracted out later in the summer.
We concentrated our efforts on a section of the trail on the south side of the
creek before stopping for lunch at one of the many campsites.
After a short lunch break we worked on the north side for another hour and a
half before calling a halt to a full day of hard work.
The hard work by Pete Cecil, Wilbur Groner, Leona Mattson, and Paula Vehrs was
greatly appreciated by the leader Mike Wight.
