Day #1 - We started at Windy Point on Nate's Birthday and had a night out at Punta Gorda...not the best night of sleep. We tore down decrepit beach shelters and fixed creek crossings today.
Day #2 - We moved onto Cooksie Spur Trail and set up camp overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean with the Punta Gorda Lighthouse in the distance. Once again, we tore down shelters and fixed creek crossings.
Day #3 - We worked on two reroutes today, one for a section of trail which was destroyed over this past winter and one reroute for a section which would have been destroyed this upcoming winter.
Day #4 - Once we completed our reroutes, we moved on to Spanish Flat to camp there.
Day #5 & 6 - Both days we tore down more beach shelters and started work decompacting and revegetating an old two track road. Paul the Backcountry Ranger resupplied us with food on day 5...thank you!
Day #7 & 8 - Big Flat, Wildcorps has returned! We moved our camp to Big Flat while continuing to remove poorly constructed beach shelters. We also continued decompacting two track roads.
Day #9 - After decompacting more two track, we tore down camp at Big Flat and started our hike out to the trailhead for our day #10 pickup. We overnighted at Horse Mountain Creek.
Day #10 - Paul the Backcountry Ranger picked us up at 9AM and we cleaned gear.
