Previous Events on this Trail
We had 1 student volunteer who was not a Trail Corps member. The
scheduled Trail Corps group was unable to make it.
We met on Old Lewis Rd at the Camrosa entrance and parked there.
Jerry Mitcham stopped by to drop off tools. George Sherman was also
present because we thought we were going to need help with
supervision, but it was clear that was not the case and he left for the
other SMMTC event.
Cindy, Alejandro (the student), and I gradually worked our way to Round
Mountain’s summit (about 1.5 miles) to where Jerry had said the worst
of the Russian thistle infestion was. Along the way, we removed some
very large fennel plants.
We did not bag any of the cut plants because they were too early in the
season to be in danger of seeding.
We stopped work early because Alejandro, our volunteer, was getting
overheated and we didn’t want to overwork him. We removed a lot of
small and very small Russian thistle plants at the summit—at least
several hundred. The area of the summit that was previously weeded is
in pretty good shape.
We returned to the cars by 12:45 pm.
NOTE: The Round Mtn trail is heavily overgrown in sections and in need of
brushing. Otherwise, pretty good condition.
