Monday and Tuesday, we'll work on the trail, hiking up to 4 miles RT. Wednesday, we'll pack up camp, do a little trail work, and then hike back out to the trailhead. Elevation change is approx. 3000'. It's steady, but not steep.Work may include clearing rock, brush, downed branches, and small trees, and repairing tread.
