Trail Maintenance

Wednesday, August 30, 2017
Leader: Matthew Bell
Trl Mnt: 2 miles, 500 ft (Moderate)

For the last Wednesday evening outing of our summer season, we improved drainage in on the Tie Trail and did some light brushing along the trail.

Dev had marked 3 spots for drainage features on the Tie Trail and Dave, Dan, and June chipped, hacked, and scraped them in. This past winter this section of trail was particularly mucky, to the point that it was inches deep in muck and had water flowing along the trail when we cleaned it this past Spring.

We were fortunate to have enough people to also be able to do some brushing. Pat, Tom, and Rebecca cut back overhanging brush and branches before they were able to encroach on the trail any further.

Special thanks go to Clara and Janet for clearing the trailhead steps, kiosk, and parking lot.

Members: Matthew Bell, David Cooper, Tom Rundle, Clara Emlen, June Sutterfield, Rebecca Eastwood, Pat Soussan, Dan Gilmore, Janet Jacobsen.
