Hardesty Mnt Trailhead Reconstruction
February 5, 1983
The unfinished Hardesty trailhead work project again beckoned on this dry,
bright Saturday morning.
A bucket brigade hauled and placed and leveled gravel, and the all-important drainage
ditch was deepened and up-graded.
Some backwoods carpentry utilizing on-site logs followed, and a fine three-step
entrance was constructed to lead the hiker on his first footing from the car park.
Additional gravel is needed to fine-hone and polish the work on this important and
President Joe Lowry briefly visited the site, with words of encouragement for all.
Hardesty artisans were Mary Bridgeman, Peter Cecil, Betty Legris, Marshall Pallett,
Fred Schepman, Helen Smith, and leader John Cecil.
