Trail Signage Replacements
This week Bill, who is visiting from the Eastern Seaboard, and Eagle went out to various locations on the Sunshine Coast Trail at trailheads or intersections with roads or trails, replacing missing signage.
New signage is once again in place where the SCT crosses Plummer Creek Road.
At the confluence of Plummer Creek and Toquenatch Creek a long established campsite with outhouse and picnic tables received some brandnew signage. This campsite was built together with the Rotary Club of Powell River
Next day Bill was putting up signage at yet another intersection of trails. Here the Exit via Spire Trail allows hikers to find their way to Lund and to Sarah Point Road. Malaspina Road and Manzanita Hut are the other directions. Which way to Colorado please?
Going the distance... applying yet another sign to ensure people find their way across intersecting roads.
Bill is putting the finishing touches to the signage at Branch 10, near Rieveley's Pond, now once again clearly marked and signed. Easy now partner, watch that thumb.
On Fairview Bay Trail at the Towers, the new reroute - which now traverses the OGMA (Old Growth Management Area) at a lower elevation - has received the old signage that had been in place just up the hill at the start of the old trail section.
Ahstrom Point claims to be half an hour away from the end of the Pole Line at the Towers, while Fairview Bay indicates one hour.
