Join us for our annual spring maintenance project on the Wenaha River Trail out of Troy, Oregon. We'll assemble at the TH by 10am on Friday morning for our crew safety briefing, and then begin our hike in with fully loaded backpacks plus trail maintenance tools (provided). We will likely camp at the site of the former ranger residence (long-gone) where a locust grove threatens to overtake the trail. We will set up camp and focus on brushing back locusts and other encroaching vegetation, plus tread work as required until Friday evening. Saturday we will work a full day, with a goal of working within the Wenaha Tucannon Wilderness near the Crooked Creek intersection. We will have more brushing, treadwork, and perhaps the opportunity to work with crosscut saws. Sunday we will work a half day closer to camp, then pack up around noon and hike out. We'll have to find a new dinner stop on the way home, as Boggin's Oasis is now gone, but we traditionally make a stop for dinner before returning to Spokane. Limit of 15 volunteers per Wilderness group size limits.
