Previous Events on this Trail
Ruth and Jon F/Sheldon and I met at the TOTC at 7:30 a.m., and shuttled down to the Fossil Ridge trail
We hiked the ~1.6 miles down to the fallen tree. When we got to the tree we realized that it was much too big for our saw, especially considering that in order to be able to move the trunk between the three of us we would have needed at least 3 cuts.
Since the uphill side is very steep, going around the base of the tree would have been a challenge.We opted instead for digging under the tree in order to make it easier to crawl under the tree.
With the dirt we removed from under the tree, we built up the edge of the trail next to either side of the tree so people can pretty easily go over the tree. After the work we did, in my view, if you are carrying a backpack this is the easier way to get around the tree.
We started back, cutting falling branches and falling small trees as we went. Time became of essence when we got close to 2 p.m. so we became selective and chose to leave some small trees for another time.
None of us had packed lunch, we made do with snacks. We got back to the truck at 2:30 p.m.
Total volunteer hours: 3 x 6 ½ = 19 ½ hours
