ToCo Notes / Narrative:
The hitch went on without a hitch. The crew felt good about the hard work they had been doing. This hitch focused on particularly hard trails around the Cave Mountain area. The crew focused on a particular set of corner cuts coming up the switchbacks. Over a dozen erosion control constructions were used. The work force on this hitch was supplemented by three other USFS interns and employees. After completing the large hill climbs, the crew focused on smaller incursions off of the main road up the mountain.
Cave Mountain is now secure.
