Trail Maintenance

May 27, 2009

It was a gorgeous evening to meet up with enthusiastic people to help build two fence sections on the steep Spencer Butte Trail. Everyone got to help carry the fence posts up to the first eroded cut. We used the powered wheel barrows to carry the gravel. With some digging, shoveling, and pounding, the fences soon defined the “real” trail. The next step was to haul old branches and logs to cover the eroded area. At 8:00 p.m. we started down the trail with high hopes that our work would stand the test of the hikers who storm the butte. First timer, David Lawrence, a U of O student, said it was lots of fun to be outdoors working on such a worthwhile project. Other volunteers were Matt Bell, Peter Green and his wife Monica, Janet Jacobsen, Katie O’Neal along with city staff members, Jason Morrow and Christer Labrecque. The next Trail Maintenance will probably be the last Wednesday in June from 5:30-8:00.
