Next Project in Sec E: Oct 6-7

Our next work project is planned for October 6-7. We will do mostly brushing and treading between Atmore Meadow Rd and Bear CG, at about the 5400' elevation (mile 500) on Liebre Mtn, above Three Points.
Volunteers should meet at 0715-0730 on Saturday morning at the pullout at the junction of Pine Canyon Rd and Forest Rd 7N23 (labelled "Bushnell Summit" on many maps), here:

A high-clearance vehicle is required to access the area, but Saturday-only volunteers can combine into high-clearance vehicles with other Saturday-only volunteers.
PCTA will supply all equipment and tools, and meals for overnighters. Volunteers can pick either day to work with us, or both, and camp with us at Sawmill Campground.
Overnighters will get fed dinner and breakfast. Otherwise, Sunday-only volunteers meet at Sawmill CG Sunday morning at 0745 with a packed lunch and the day's water. Directions to Sawmill CG:

Volunteers will need to bring leather work gloves, robust footwear, sun protection, wear long pants / long-sleeved shirts for working in brush, and robust weatherproof shell. Day volunteers should also bring a sack lunch and water. A short bit of hiking is required to access the work.
Feel free to forward this announcement on to other interested parties. As the date approaches I will provide any additional details to those signing up.
Please respond directly to Section Chief Dave Fleischman <owldave57@gmail.com> or me <hikevv@gmail.com> if interested in volunteering.

Pine Canyon Project


Trail Gorillas Pete and Jerry started the cutting during the week, and then Dave and I were joined by Troop 555 and other PCTA volunteers to clear miles 508/509 near Pine Canyon Road. Congrats to all who participated, and special thanks also go to Kathy for serving as our crew cook and to Rancho Corona del Valle for their hospitality in allowing us the use of their property and kitchen. On Sunday, we finished treading out the worst stretch while snow fell, but we could not have brushed so much trail without the help of all those mentioned above.

Next Project: March 31- April 1

Hello Pacific Crest Trail Volunteers,
The next trail project planned is March 31 - April 1, in Miles 505 - 509, at 3800 - 5200 ft elevations on the north slope of Liebre Mtn. PCTA will supply all equipment and tools, and meals for overnighters. Volunteers can pick either day to work with us, or both, and camp with us at Rancho Corona del Valle
Campers who arrive Friday night will be served Saturday breakfast before we head out. Otherwise, meet at the ranch at 0730 Saturday morning with your packed lunch.
A high-clearance vehicle is not required to access the work site.
Volunteers will need to bring leather work gloves, robust footwear, sun protection, long pants / long-sleeved shirts for working in brush, and weatherproof shell. Day volunteers should also bring a sack lunch and water. We will be working the segment of PCT above Pine Canyon Rd, so up to 2.5 miles of hiking is required to access the work.
Feel free to forward this announcement on to other interested parties. As the date approaches I will provide any additional details to those signing up. Please respond directly to Section Chief Dave Fleischman or to me if interested in volunteering.
