Because of the longer drive to the trail, we are making this a two day trail project to maximize time on the trail. 

We will meet at Hagggen's Food and Drug at 1313 Cooper Point Rd at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 6. Meet on the lefthand side of the large parking lot, over by the trees. It will be helpful if car pools can be arranged prior to 8:00.  I am having trouble locating an overnight parking spot. If neccesary we will be leaving cars at my home 10 minutes from Haggens.

We will begin  working from the Western trailhead about 25 minutes from the Lake Wynooochee Dam Overlook.  There are several large tree parts down on the trail, some may need cutting before they can be moved off.  There's also much brushing along the trail.  We are making plans to use USFS cordless brushcutter to help with the brushing. 

We have a private campsite at Lake Wynoochee for those interested in spending the night.  Car Camping details will be shared with those who register or inquire at
