Walker Hill Work Day 5/19/07

Our club, along with some good friends of TDO, spent Saturday morning working on the log/rock ramp at the bottom of Walker Hill. The ramp had weathered the winter well but still needed a few repairs and needed to be extended further down the trail. We ended up adding about 15 feet to the ramp that included several large diameter logs and about 2,000 pounds of rock I have to thank Rock Tractor for hauling all the rock, thanks Mike!!! Mike Ross and his GF from TTORA worked hard with us (thanks for the chain saw Mike) and took a good picture of the work in process. I'm sure he won't mind if I share it here.

If you're running the trail this year, I'm going to ask you for a favor. Please pick up one medium sized rock from the spillway area and deliver it to the ramp. Just throw it in as you pass by. It will really help keep the errosion to a minimum.

That's a great idea! If everyone did that we wouldn't have any more erosion problems.

On the way out this weekend we dragged some rocks into the bypass just before the used-to-be-gatekeeper. I realize that anyone with a half way decent rig could drive right over, but they will know they are doing something wrong.

Before:



After:



It will be a miracle if the signs don't end up in a campfire this weekend, but hopefully they will help a few lost people.

Later,

Nice work guys!! All it needs now is a giant water bar above it to turn the water off the trail. Speaking of that, I noticed the plans for June 30th have Walker projects. Is TDO still planning on more work??

Yes, we have a lot of work to do on the 30th. I posted this on the FOTR Email list this morning.

"Good morning everyone!

We spent last Saturday working on Walker Hill/Rock area. The ramp at the bottom was in good condition. A few repairs were needed and it was extended about 15' further down the trail. It still needs to be extended another 15-20 feet. Walker Hill is in good condition from the ramp up to, what I affectionately call "Stacie's Rock", just before the top. The V really isn't any deeper (thanks to Randii's groups water bars built last year) but still needs attention. 2000# of rock will fix it! Now for the bad news, the muddy trench at the top in the trees is in bad shape! I know Randii/Rusty/Scott have been hashing ideas around and we could really use some help up there. My thoughts are to start with a rock base the complete length of the trench & no logs. This is going to be a multi-trip project as I see it.

We will have 3 Leads heading up crews at the Log Ramp, Stacie's Rock & the Trench. We need 15 people & 1 rock hauler (trailer or rig) on the Log Ramp, 6 people and 1 rock hauler for Stacie's Rock & 15-20 people and 2 rock haulers for the Trench.

This will be very hard work! Many hands will help lighten the load.

Happy Trails!

Mark"

That spot was still in great shape on Saturday. Did a Trail Patrol run on Saturday and thought it was great.
