Today Bruce and Ron cleared the East Lake and Lang Creek Loop. A fairly large amount of blowdown was all along the trail, but it's good to go now.

Appleton Canyon (SCT)

Light snowfall while we cleared the Appleton Canyon Trail, from the gravel pit/parking lot at KM 6 of Tomkinson (Wilde) Road, to the old growth rec site, all the way up to biffy and out to the old McManus access trail at about KM 8. Trail is now in good condition, all deadfall gone.

Trinket Trail

We hiked the entire Trinket Trail and the SCT connector from Southview Road. The trail is totally clear except for one downfall that was too big for our saw, however, you can climb over it very easily.

Atrevida Loop, Wilde Loop, Appleton

Within the last two weeks we've cleaned out Atrevida Loop, Wilde Creek Loop, and the upper access trail to the Appleton Canyon biffy above the campsite and creek crossing. The lower end of Appleton Canyon from the gravel pit parking lot at KM 6 of Wilde Road up to the campsite along the creek has not been cleared yet according to our most recent information, although some one had gone through there in early November.
