I was able to go out with the USFS folks we will be working with and see the trail. The trail is extremely overgrown, and they want the trail to be brushed out to their specifications. For us, that means a lot of time with a bow saw and loppers, trimming brush. We will then be following up with some tread work, minor changes in the location of the trail, some rock wall construction and trail reinforcement. Lots of work, but I am sure we can make the trail shine by the end of the crew.
Camp is going to start out at the Oregon/Washington state line, near the banks of Crooked Creek. Work will start downstream, where Crooked Creek joins the Wenaha River. The crew will the progress upstream, ultimately trying to finish eight to ten miles of trail over the course of the summer.
Thanks to Rich and Andy for a great introduction to the forest, and special thanks to the horses that carried the loads.
