Meet at 7:30 at Haggen's Foods at 1313 Cooper Point Road on the left-hand side of their large parking lot.  Look over near the trees.   

So far we have only been able to scout 1/3 of the trail because of the high - late snow level  this Spring.  We will be scouting the trail for  downed trees and documenting trail erosion  and trail tread damage. While we are out there, we will be cutting out some of the downed trees and brushing some of the most bothersome  encroaching vegetation.  The first 1/3 of the trail visited back in  May and again in June was in fair shape.
