Trip Report: Hiking Trail Maintenance - Tool Carry to Mill B North with Forest Service
Hiking Trail Maintenance - Tool Carry to Mill B North with Forest Service
By Paula McFarland
| Our intrepid group of WMC trail volunteers met Daisy DeMarco, our trip organizer and WMC Trail Maintenance Coordinator, at the BCC Park and Ride at 8:30 a.m. and carpooled up to the Mill B North trailhead. The Mill B parking lot was already full when we arrived, even on a weekday. Our group met up with volunteers from the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation and the Forest Service trail maintenance crew. We were each given a large tool to carry and we headed up the trail to our destination about 2.5 miles up where the trail had been badly eroded by spring runoff. It was a perfect day for a hike and the Mill B North trail offered us beautiful views, some early wildflowers, and pockets of shade as made our way up to the work site. Once we arrived at our destination, we hung out and chatted with the CCF and FS trail crew. We ate snacks and took pictures before heading back down the trail. Matt Hales from FS Trail Crew expressed his sincere thanks to the WMC volunteers. We all left with a great feeling of providing service to our beautiful Wasatch trails, as well as enjoying a good workout, a beautiful day, spectacular views, and great company!
