Re: Geeky Trail Building Thread.

It’s been a busy summer so I haven’t posted in here much. Here’s a bit of an update.

We stopped working on Heart as monsoon season started and then we had the fire on Elden. We are back on it this coming week and I’m really excited. I’ve also been continuing with the trail Faeries volunteer days on weekends when I can. The crew leader position for ACE has been a great experience so far but it’s hard. We often are in the field for eight days straight for ten hour days doing extremely hard work. Hopefully ina year or two I’ll have my own jobs lined up but for now I’m working on my resume and reputation. Here’s where we left off on Heart.





The trail is looking beautiful and we are starting to gain some legit elevation. It’s gonna be a sick descent!

Re: Geeky Trail Building Thread.

After the heart I was out doing trail work re-establishing a hiking trail in the Kendrick Peak Wilderness area but after the fire we were pulled from there to make sandbags for areas in Flagstaff that are in danger of serious flooding from fire damage. After 8 days of sand bagging and creating barriers for homes I was extremely excited to be done and get into the Grand Canyon for some trail work where we built a rock liner wall for a drain. The approach was only about 1.7 miles to the work site but it’s the Canyon so it’s steep and there was zero shade where the project was and it was HOT. Still, not bad views from the office.

Re: Geeky Trail Building Thread.

After the Canyon we went back to the Kendrick Peak Wilderness area to continue work on the Bull Basin Trail. By day five our approach was around 3 miles. It was a rugged tour no doubt.

Here’s a rock staircase we built.

Before.




After.

The Kendrick Peak Wilderness area has seen a lot of fire since 2000 but it’s still extremely beautiful.

Progress on Little Elden has continued all summer as well with volunteer efforts and should be completed by the end of October.

Re: Geeky Trail Building Thread.

I am grateful for the trail crews in my area. they have given more joy then I can say , all at no cost to me. I do donate money, but I don't have the time or the back to help build. So thanks!!!
