This year's late snow storms took a heavy toll on the the trails in Spencer Butte Park. The snow not only brought down trees it brought down, moss, twigs, needles, and other material that accumulated as muck in the trails.
For this outing we started out from the Willamette & 52nd trailhead and hiked up the trail raking and scraping material off of the trail surface. We expanded on the previous weeks joint work with the City and what other trail users had done cutting fallen trees and branches back away from the trail. We also cleared drains and drainage features, some of which were filled to the point that they were at the same level as the trail surface. Our group worked into just above the switchbacks and before the illicit North trail on the Ridgeline.Members: Matthew Bell, Janet Jacobsen, Jorry Rolfe, Pat Soussan, Clara Emlen, Betty Grant, Matthew Lockfeld. Nonmembers: Rick McMonagle, Daniel Hartnell.
