August 10th Teton Dirt Report
Week # 15 of the MBT Trail Crew Season!
Undoubtedly, trail work can be hard on the body. This past week the crew took some time to recover. Bending, swinging, lifting, riding and crashing are all part of the job and staying healthy is a top priority. However, the crew was still able to complete some needed maintenance, trail administration work and host another successful volunteer day last week. Here’s the breakdown of what they were up to:
- Tuesday: Alec, Eric and Stacey headed out on Nemo’s and Grumpy’s for some heavy brushback maintenance, clearing sight lines and overgrown areas.
- Wednesday: Wednesday morning Alec and Chris prepared carsonite signage to be installed on Corral Cr. and Red Cr. Alec hit the trail with the signage and a focus on brushing some overgrown areas on upper Red Cr. where he spotted a Mountain Lion!
- Friday: Chris and Alec focused on preparation for the volunteer trail day on Tie Canyon. After assessing work within the first half-mile, they cleared and pin flagged a 220ft reroute and loaded up the truck for the following day.
- Saturday Tie Canyon Volunteer Trail Day. Thanks to the great folks who swung tools with us, completing the reroute and installing a heavily armored spring runoff drain. More work planned for Tie Canyon in the future, if you haven’t been, check it out!
Join us next weeked in Rainey Creek for a weekend of backcountry trail restoration on Thompson Peak! Sign-up HERE.
