This winter was hard on the much-loved Baker River and Baker Lake Trails. At our next volunteer event of the season we’ll work on the short section of Baker River Trail before crossing the bridge and continue our mission to log out the Baker River Trail from the north end using crosscut and hand saws to clear fallen trees as well as loppers and other hand tools to brush back vegetation.
Participants will meet at the end of Baker Lake Road, where flooding washed out some of the road last winter. We’ll then walk the last little bit of road (less than half a mile) to the Baker River Trailhead and begin working. They must have a daypack, lunch, water, long pants, long sleeves and boots.
We will meet at the washout on Baker Lake Road at 9:00am, have a quick safety chat and then get to work clearing the trail of logs both large and small. Take lunch on the banks of beautiful Baker Lake and then work until about 3:00pm.
This event is great for both seasoned trail stewards and folks with minimal experience!
