Trail Clearing Begins with Battle A62 East

May 2, the first day of the new maintenance season: weather was perfect, campground end of trail, not so much.

Equipment and materials were hauled in from A63 to the base of RBT hill, overcoming steep inclines, wet, boggy areas, and deadfall blocks. While 4 of the crew added another 30′ to the bog boardwalk, and shingled the bridge, the other 3 scouted through, chainsawing, clipping, and signing; a pretty little section of old trail running through a copse of trees was reinstated. The bogwalk could benefit by extending it another 50-75′.

Hiking Bunchberry Meadows

Six of us set out in the crisp coolness of the morning through the pathways of Tuckers Field along a ridge of old trees and fallen leaves to arrive at Bunchberry’s backdoor. The forest held such a variety with meadows inbetween. Here the birch make their stand.Tamaracks laid a cushy yellow carpet and perfumed the air. 

The sun was out to celebrate our day hiking Bunchberry!
