THIS WORK PARTY IS CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER: The combined impact of the weather forecast and wet trail conditions make our plans for this Saturday sound like a miserable way to spend part of a day – even on a pretty trail. Trail work parties are supposed to be fun – not a slog working in slick conditions in freezing rain or snow. I mentioned the possibility about three weeks ago of seeing early wildflowers owing to the warm weather. They’re now frozen so you won’t be missing a big show of flowers this weekend! However, by March 17th – our next planned work party at Armstrong Trailhead – we should definitely see some flowers out – we hope.
Thank you to all of you who planned to come help. We hope to see you in March.
Have a nice weekend.
This month we will work from the Little Applegate Trailhead toward Tunnel Ridge TH. With the ridiculously warm weather we have been having we may see some early wildflowers. This will be an out and back hike totaling about four to five miles – depending upon how far we get! Great views and a lovely hike.
Where: Meet at Buncom (corner of Sterling Creek Rd and Little Applegate Rd at 8:30 AM. We will carpool/caravan to the Little Applegate Trailhead.
