7:15 a.m. we well meet in  Haggen's Foods parking lot at 1313 Cooper Point Road.  Facing the store front in the large parking lot we will be to the far left hand side by the trees. 

We can pick up other along the way if they request a separate meeting point.

There are 40 trees of various size down on the trail, all at elevations above Horse Camp.  There's  a good hike required just to get to the work site.  We will be moving slowly up the trail to the work site and them more slowly as we evaluate each down tree for clearing.  It is very unlikely we will cover more than 4 miles.    This day will be spent clearing as many of the smaller, less complicated down trees as the day allows and brushing several overgrown stretches of trail.    Additional trips to clear this trail will likely be scheduled in July.
