Greenhorn Volunteers

Fifteen volunteers recently worked in Greenhorn Gulch on the Greenhorn Trail.

Mike, Josh and Reid working on the trail.

BCRD Adopt-A-Trail event on Tuesday, September 11th brought workers together to perform maintenance on portions of the trail that had become heavily sloped to the side. The excessive outsloping made walking on the trail difficult.

The volunteers dug into the trail tread and reshaped it into a much safer, and more approachable product. In some places, sections of the trail’s backslope were sloughing onto the trail, so the backslope was reshaped in those areas.

Improved footing.

Other work accomplished that night included the repair of a couple of footbridges, and the cutting-back of plants that were encroaching on area bridges and horse-fords.

Re-cutting sections of the trail’s backslope.

Thank you volunteer’s Mike, Chris, Dan, Anne, Jody, Nancy, Gloria, Reid, Chris, Mike, Gary, Alex, Laurie, Dave, and Josh.

The group had a great time getting the work done, and the gathering afterwards at Chris and Mike’s house for food and drinks was a blast. Thanks for party! Thank you also to our Adopt-A-Trail Nights sponsors The BCRD, Sawtooth Brewery, and Clif Bar.

The next BCRD Adopt-A-Trail Night is Thursday, September 27 meeting at the BLM Lake Creek Trailhead to make repairs to the trailhead footbridge. The work will be to assist the BLM with the replacement of some of the footbridge’s deck boards. The event will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and we will have simple food and a variety of beverages for the volunteers afterwards. Come lend a hand if you can.
