At Jason Finlay’s request, two Trail Council volunteers hiked in to the Upper Sycamore Trail to locate and possibly remove a tree that had been reported as having fallen across the trail. The downed tree, a large Coast Live Oak, was located about 50’ below the junction of Upper Sycamore Trail and Danielson Road/Old Cabin Trail. It completely blocked the trail causing hikers to detour through the brush and twice across a gully to continue on trail. Equestrians were unable to proceed. After assessing any risks, we elected to start removing the branches that we could safely deal with. We were able to remove sufficient material to make the trail passable, though we left some large, heavy, overhead branches impinging on the creek side of the trail for a larger crew with chainsaws.
Participants: Jon Sheldon, Ruth Feldon.
Total volunteer hours: 2 volunteers x 3.5hours = 7 hours
