  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 6.4 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,000 ft

7:15 a.m. we will 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 others along the way if they request a separate meeting point.

On a previous scouting trip on June 21 there were 40 trees of various sizes down on the trail, all at elevations above Horse Camp.  There's a good hike required just to get to the work site, however, we may use an alternative route to the work site which requires less elevation gain, but the distance is further.   We will be moving moderately slow to the work site and them cautiously to each down tree as we evaluate the tree for clearing.  An earlier trail clearing trip on June 30 could have cleared several of the smaller problems (progress unknown at the time of this posting) and this trip will be devoted to clearing some of the more difficult entanglements and larger trees.  Additional trips to clear this trail will likely be scheduled as needed in July.
