Deception Butte Trail
March 24, 1985
Sunday’s trail trip put the finishing touches on the new 65 ft. bridge crossing
Deception Creek (Trail #3466) in the Lowell District culminating a series of work parties
over a period of a year or more, and a long felt, overdue hiking “want” has now
been addressed: Deception Creek may now be crossed, safely, conveniently, & dry footed!
Specifically, south end access steps were completed, trail connection realigned, pier
supports reinforced with river boulders, and the site generally cleaned up.
“Last” work party was composed of Pete Cecil, Betty Macy and John Cecil, leader.
