Spencer Butte Trail Maintenance

Saturday, March 30, 2013
Leader: Matthew Bell
Trl Mnt: 2 miles, 500 ft (Moderate)

We met up at the Fox Hollow trailhead to continue our work to improve the Tie Trail. We started where we left off during last month's outing. We continued to work to widen and regrade the trail and build rock retaining walls from found and hauled in rock. This time we also were able to bring in gravel using the power-wheelbarrows to form a nice surface for hikers to hike on.

Dan worked especially hard selecting the right rocks for the outer retaining walls. Autumn and Chyanne were especially helpful spreading gravel. Autumn and Roberta also worked together to create a perfect rolling drain dip in the trail to drain water off the trail to keep a wet muddy spot from recurring next year and undoing the work we done in this section over the last two outings.

Dave and Ed hiked further up the Tie Trail and worked to improve drainage.
