Great turnout for our 3rd trail work! Three folks (John Sharp, leader, Phil Hazen, and George Long) met at 7 AM at Stevensville trail head. They did a lot of cutting on the way to Puffer and also did some other trail work. Ten of us met at Richmond Park & Ride and drove to Lake Mansfield Trout Club.
Four cleared the trail back to the overnight/winter parking lot (some handsaw cutting and light trail work). The other 6 of us headed up Lake Mansfield Trail and cleared downed trees, water bars and did some clipping. We took a break at Taylor Lodge and the other 4 caught up. We then headed towards Puffer, clearing the trail but leaving the chainsaw at Taylor.
After going most of the way to Puffer, the group met the 3 coming down from Puffer, as they had spent a lot of time chainsaw cutting. A few of our group hiked on to see Puffer with everyone else heading down. The group of 10 regrouped at Taylor before the final decent. They were Carol Irish, Peter Kassel, Mike Arthur, Lisa Hardy, Bill Kruesi, Dave Hathaway, Ted Albers, Kevin Burke, and Jeffrey Trubisz.
There was definitely more chainsaw work than in the typical year.
