Tools to bring: BOW SAWS OR PRUNING SAWS, long handle LOPPERS, WEED WHIPS, MACHETE, and the old manual HEDGE TRIMMER. A pick and shovel could come in handy. Please let Don know you'll be attending.

Baker Trail Maintenance Day (Milton Loop campground, Mar 11, 2006 from 09:00 am to 04:00 pm) by Steve Mentzer
Help us re-route the Baker Trail! Our plan is to put the trail back down by Mahoning Creek (where it was a long time ago) and keep the road, Rt. 839, marked as an alternative to high waters. There is a good bit of work to do. Bring a lunch, water and lots of layered clothes. The focus will be clearing the trail -- there are a lot of downed trees, so chain saws are welcome. We'll also be collecting lots of trash deposited by high water during recent storms. Blazing is possible if the temperature permits. Contact Patty for more details.
