Rebel Rock Trail
May 14, 1983
As a main segment of Obsidian Field Days 1983, a short section of new trail
in the Blue River Ranger District gained the attention of six Obsidians, one
nonmember and the Blue River Recreation Officer.
Planned to alleviate the present limited and dangerous trailhead parking,
the new trail will tie in with Rebel Creek Trail and a soon-to-be-built
parking area at Rebel Creek Bridge.
Despite a constant heavy drizzle, extremely thick and almost impenetrable
vine maple and rhododendrons were cleared to make a 6-foot wide, one-third
mile long corridor.
Several follow-up trips will be needed to rough-out and finish the tread.
The many Obsidians who use this area, yet found other things to do on May 14,
owe the following dedicated and hard-working volunteers a big thanks for
doing a great job: Keith Blunck, Jerry Casby, John Cecil, Gene Flynt (USFS),
Shirley Froyd, Betty Legris, Ben Ross, and leader Pete Cecil.
