Fall Creek-Timber Crk Bridge
February 23, 1983
A hastily assembled group of trail workers met at the damaged Timber Creek
Bridge on lower Fall Creek Trail.
A large windfall had shattered a half dozen bridge handrails, but miraculously
had spared the up-rights.
Despite limited tools, everyone set to skinning logs, running the saw, or
notching and installing new rails.
After several hours (and two rails accidentally dropped in the creek) the repair
was declared “better than new.”
On the way out a hideous fire ring was dispersed, the ashes buried and the general
area returned to a near natural setting.
A young Douglas fir was planted on the fire ring site to further discourage its use.
Timber Creekers were John Cecil, Betty Legris, Mary Bridgeman, Helen Smith
and leader Pete Cecil.
