Goodman Creek Trail Maintenance

April 23, 2005

Three Obsidians — Darrel McBee, Wayne Deeter and Peter Asai — met 33 other trail enthusiasts for a cooperative trail maintenance work day at Goodman Creek Trail in the Middle Fork Ranger District, 14 miles from Eugene. The weather was overcast, cool and consistently rainy, but couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of this diverse work party. Members of the Northwest Youth Corps, Americorp, REI, Backcountry Horsemen, Disciples of Dirt and the Obsidians spent 4½ hours cleaning out and restoring several drainage culverts, graveling the trail and cutting back brush. REI sponsored the work and provided materials, fruit, Cliff bars and water. It was an impressive example of what a motivated, well directed group can accomplish in relatively short time. It was also an inspirational example of diverse trail users coming to work together on supporting our local trail systems.
