Update from the North Cascades

Postby North 350 Blades » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:41 am

Well, our little PCT volunteer crew has been busy this last month. Working backwards we've done:

- Aug 23-25 we cleared 0.9 miles of brush and did a full tread restoration on another quarter mile of tread, about 3 miles north of Tacoma Pass (Section I, ~Mile 2392.2)
- Aug 17-18 we worked over the better part of 2 miles of trail north out of White Pass / Highway 12 (Section I, Mile 2320) restoring drainage and installing check steps on a couple eroding sections of trail. Also restored an existing set of check steps.
- August 15th (and earlier) we finished up cutting out the last of the winter blow down between Blowout Mtn (Section I, Mile ~2384) and the Wilderness Boundary north of Snoqualmie Pass (Section J, ~Mile 2422)
- We did some brushing near the power line stripes near Stampede Pass (Section I~Mile 2398).
- July 27 cleared Brush and logs north of Stevens Pass / Hwy 2 (Section K~Mile 2483).
- Did tread restoration south of Windy Pass (Section I~Mile 2412)

We have an upcoming project near Deception Pass (Section J, ~Mile 2463). We currently have 8 trail crew signed up to clear brush, blow down and restore tread. We have another project with about a dozen volunteers to work the tread north of Chinook Pass / Highway 410 in mid September. And after that we have another (at least) 5 single day projects to clear brush and restore tread in the north part of Section I near Snoqualmie Pass.

There are volunteer crews working up and down the trail. Consider joining one.
