Spencer Butte Trail Maintenance

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Leader: Matthew Bell
Trl Mnt: 2 miles, 500 ft (Moderate)

Our group of volunteers met at 5:30 at the main Spencer Butte parking lot to continue our work from last month. We hiked up the West Trail with rakes and hoes. We raked fir needles and duff off the cobble sections. We also lined the trailsides with sticks, boughs, and logs. Much of this was work we were doing for the second time in as many months because people had removed our previous work. It will be very interesting to see if this month's work persists until our next outing. Along the way we chipped in and cleaned the steps and pounded down a few protruding pieces of rebar. All the while we were serenaded by an unknown singer's spiritual chanting from somewhere on the butte.

Special thanks go to Clara Emlen for the immaculate cleaning on the concrete steps that was performed this outing she was joined by Janet, Autumn, and Roberta. And, to Dan Gilmore for packing the sledge hammer up and down the trail.

Members: Matthew Bell, Tommy Young, Roberta Chord, Autumn Estes, Todd Larsen, Janet Jacobsen, Jim Whitfield, Dan Gilmore, Clara Emlen.
