Trail Workday Update

  • Hickory Creek Trail, 2/24/2018
  • Trail: Hickory Creek Trail

    volunteerWell, it only took us about three months to get in a workday! Wow, has the weather really bitten us over the winter! A happy group of volunteers finally made it out to our beloved wilderness to give some TLC to the Hickory Creek Trail. Troy Brown, Wanda Brown, David Tanner, John Franetic, Jim Leatherwood, Tim Carlton, John Desmond, and Charles McCullough hit the trail on Saturday morning and worked on waterbars up to the turnaround point. Tim promised Troy and Wanda approximately 24 years ago (yes, you read that right) that he’d come back out and help us another time. He made it back today! Thanks, Tim, and we hope we see you again, but maybe not quite so long into the future.

    Ranger, Kevin Vasalinda continued his ongoing training regarding new techniques for waterbar construction/maintenance. He also led the group on a short side-excursion to an old home site, which was fascinating.

    Many thanks to all our volunteers who worked hard to maintain a beautiful trail. We hope to see many of you on another workday in the near future.
