Spencer Butte Trail Maintenance

June 4, 2005

On a beautiful spring morning, 13 Obsidians and three other individuals celebrated National Trails Day (June 4) by working to improve the Ridgeline Trail with representatives of Eugene City Parks. The enthusiastic group broke up into three crews: one for clearing brush and overgrowth from the trail, a second for hauling gravel using power wheelbarrows and filling in low areas, and the third for raising and rebuilding a 50 ft. section of the trail with logs, then filling in with gravel. Good progress was made in all areas and the group completed the scheduled four hours of work with a real sense of accomplishment. The members participating included Rick Ahrens, Marsha Barr, Max Brown, Jim Duncan (leader), Sharon Duncan, Stewart Hoeg, Richard Hughes, Gary Kirk, Beth Kodama, Joanne Ledet, Lana Lindstrom, Bill Prentice and Margaret Prentice.
