With one hitch in the Wynoochee Area under our belts we transitioned into a larger scale project. Our project was to establish a re-route that would take the trail away from a washed out bridge (@ Trout Creek) to a Forest Service(FS) road that would give hikers and bikers easy passage over Trout Creek. The proposed re-route takes the trail through an old growth cedar forest that makes for a potentially hazardous but inspiring place to work. After seeing the route that was laid out and approved by the FS, we walked it to get a look at what was in store for us. Stumbling over down logs and tripping over enormous roots it seemed like a impossible task to the crew. Each day with more clearing, brushing and tread building came the confidence that we could build a real trail from start to finish. With minor adjustments, overcoming old growth roots and some fine tuning we were rapidly establishing ourselves as a capable and hardworking trail crew.
