2018 Completed Projects
Lower Bunchgrass Trail Reroute
This has been the most intensive trails project on the Logan Ranger District in 2018. Approximately 2 miles of trail have been rerouted. These reroutes took place in two locations. A lower reroute connected the existing trail to the Tony Grove Winter Trailhead. This lower reroute included the construction of a bridge, the installation of a cattle guard, and some fencing work. The upper reroute took place approximately 2 miles from the existing trailhead. This reroute included a bridge installation, as well as over a mile of rerouted trail. This project will include efforts to provide project completion. Volunteers are encouraged to bring tools, shovels, rakes, loppers and pruners.

Coldwater East (June 2nd, June 9th 9am)From Amanda Wanner: "I'm planning on doing brushing and tree clearing for my 1st and 2nd work days on Saturday, June 2, 2018 and Saturday, June 9 on the Coldwater East Trail. I've got July 14 penciled in on my calendar for the 3rd work day. The plan is to work on the area between Coldwater Lake and the snowline on the Wellsville Ridge on our work days this summer. We'll start our work at Coldwater Lake and gradually work our way up the trail, and see how far we get. :). We'll be meeting at the parking lot on Mendon Square at 20 N 100 W (Hwy 23) in Mendon on at 9am on June 2 and June 9. We'll fill out the volunteer paperwork and then carpool up to the Coldwater East trailhead.
Rattlesnake (June 6th, 5-9pm)From Erik Syrstad: "We will focus mainly on clearing the trail corridor (endless pruning and brush cutting), starting at about mile 1.5 from the trailhead. I ran to Box Elder on Sunday and the main overgrown section is about 1.5 miles long, with the worst of it in the upper half. The lower section we trimmed last year is in good shape overall. A secondary task (given a large enough crew) will be improving the drainage in several key trough-like sections that are eroding away with each big rain event. Sections of tread in the avalanche gully section also need some grading.
Motorized Trail Maintenance, Little Bear Trailhead (July 14 8am)From Lisa Thompson, USFS: "Meeting Location:Little Bear Trailhead, Sinks Road (FR 055), approximately 41.2 miles east of Logan.
Please RSVP, Bagels and coffee will be provided so we will need a close guesstimate on how many people will be attending.
Be Prepared: On volunteer days, please be prepared by wearing long sleeve shirts, pants, sturdy footwear, safety glasses/sunglasses, and gloves. If you have tools (loppers, pruners, hand saws, digging tools) bring them along as well. Also be sure to bring adequate water and snacks to sustain yourself. Lastly, sunscreen and a positive attitude is strongly recommended.
Spring Hollow Trail RerouteAnother project we will be focused on this summer is a 1/2 mile section of the popular Spring Hollow Trail. USFS and CTA are calling for volunteers—will you answer? Meet at Group Site #2 on June 16th at 8am and get some dirt under your fingernails! (Update—DATE CANCELLED—Reschedule Date Pending from USFS)
From the USFS: "This early season project will focus on a reroute of the Spring Hollow trail near its' beginning at Group Site #2 in Spring Hollow Campground. The proposed reroute will be approximately 0.5 miles in length. The reroute will be cut using a mix of hand and machine construction. Volunteers will be focused primarily on finish work on the trail."
