Ten willing workers descended the Hardesty Trail to reroute a steep wornout
section of tread ¼ mile below Crale Creek Road.
A gentler grade had previously been flagged by members of the Trails Committee.
The hundreds of hikers who use this trail will soon be able to breath a sigh of
relief when the three long overdue switch backs are completed.
Despite the threat of a damp day everyone pitched in wielding pulaskis and grub
hoes to rough-out the majority of the new section.
A follow-up trip will be made soon to complete the project.
It appears that only one person read the fine print on the sign-up sheet, thanx
for the pastry Elliot.
All hikers using this popular trail in the future owe a big thanx to Don Payne,
Marshall Pallett, Betty Legris, Jerry Casby, Melinda Bruce, John Cecil,
Mary Bridgeman, Elliot Aronin, Helen Smith and leader Pete Cecil.
