Bamforth Ridge/LT work trip

Saturday May 19, 2012

13 volunteers (including two new volunteers) met at Mont. High School to carpool to the trail head. The usual tasks were drainage structures, removing debris from trail, brushing in wide spots, etc. In addition, 4 volunteers hiked to a point about 500 yards above Duxbury Window where a massive spruce tree had fallen across the trail taking several other trees with it. It was a tangled mess! After about 2 hours the trail was opened.
