Trail Work at Tellico

I'll try to keep an up to date list of our work days so you can have a "traffic report" of where and when we'll be on the trails. Most of our work days here are heavy equipt. work and only require a few of us, but we have some projects that are going to require labor. If you are interested in helping keep the area open you can PM me here, or e-mail me at rob.theurer@sfwda.org, with your contact info and I'll put you on my contact list.

We're going to keep the trails open, but there will be some delays.Trail5 will probably be closed temporarily( about an hour at a time) as we move the dumptrucks in and out.Other than that it will just be closed right where we will be working.I'll try to keep an up to date post on where we will be.

Our plan is to try to get done with Trail 5 and up through Fain's Ford 6/15-6/20. Then Fix Trail 4 up to the spot past the upper end of trail8 where it is falling off. When we get done with this we will go to trail8 ( unless USFS changes priorities). That all said your answer is that by the 30th we SHOULD be on trail 8, and out of the way.

Rob, thanks for stepping up and getting on here. That's the best idea either you or SFWDA has had. Not everyone gets on the Southern website but thousands get on here. Thanks for the updates and I'd love to help out.

Right now we're rebuilding water diverter berms and cleaning out silt traps. We're also fixing some of the places that the trail is sluffing off and closing illegal trails.

Was just there this past weekend. Up to Fains you all have done a great job. Taken some of the challenge away but understand the reasoning behind the jobs. Keep up the good work. Thanks for the effort in order to let us keep riding Tellico

Did the bridges get built? I heard that they were putting bridges in at Fains Ford and the river crossing on trail 5.

Sorry to be late with this post, we have been distracted with the impending law suit to close the area. June 30 and July1 Rob will be doing work at Fains Ford and I will be hauling rock to Fains in a 5 ton. Trail 5 will be temporarily closed when we are going up with the dump truck. We will have a escort vehicle running ahead of it on trail 4 to give you time to find a place to get off the trail.
Thanks

thank you rob for all your hard work and effort. who is funding all this work that you are doing ? maybe you should start a donation program to help out.
maybe guys that cant come help because its so far to drive might be glad to chip in a little . if i were close by , i would be there every weekend helping you out. ive been to tellico once and i got hooked. im hoping to go back more . infact when i got back home , i tore my rig down , put it back near stock , and started to build a new rig more suited to tellico. its almost complete.

Rob, we saw the truck and the track hoe sitting on T5. Looked like the track hoe had some hydraulic breakage. Anyway, good job at Fains Ford. Looks nice.

As of July 2 we're still at Fain's Ford. We have another work weekend July 13-18. We should get done with Fains and be heading toward the bottom of trail 9. June 30 we blew a line on the trachoe ( thats why the "doggie training pads" were under it) got it fixed and moving the next day. Anyone wanting to make a donation can contact SFWDA's treasurer and tell him that you want to make a donation to the Tellico Trail Fund. This is what helps keep the dump trucks running. ROB

The bridge pictured above is over the old water crossing on trail 5. Passed over it on Saturday and it looked great.

We Will be working (weather and equipt. permitting) July 13th -18th. We will finish Fains Ford and then move up the lower end of trail 8. There will be gravel trucks on 5 and 4 (toward Fains). 5 will be closed temporarily as we are moving trucks (shouldn't be more than an hour at a time). There shouldn't be any long term delays. ROB
