Mazama Trail logged out

The Mazamas wrapped up their three day work party on the Mazama Trail #625 on Mt Hood yesterday. 63 logs removed, drains cleaned out, brushing done, gravel patched in rock slide, no snow, so it's totally clear bottom to top. Sadly, we left a few (million) black flies behind, they were too hard to cl...

Re: Yocum Ridge Tr. log hop

Mazamas are scheduled to log this trail out on Aug 15. 25+ logs may be challenging but we tackled 17 on the Mazama trail two weeks ago, may have to step up our game!

Mazama trail annual maintenance complete

Just got back from the annual 4 day Mazama work party, our first since the Dollar Lake fire last year. All logs are cleared out (there weren't too many thanks in part to the USFS hazardous tree removal efforts), the gravel bed through the rock slide down low has been replenished, brushing completed,...

Greenpoint via Wyeth

Ascended the Wyeth Trail to North Lake jct today, then on to Greenpoint via the 418. There are a few trees to step around and over on Wyeth, not too bad, and some small ones on the 418 but they are easy as well. Odd day, we sat under an isolated thunder cell at 10:30 and it poured for a few minutes,...

Re: Elk - Kings Mountains Loop

I (solo Mazama) did some brushing on the back side of King on 6/30 and re-benched 4 sections of crumbling trail. Knocked off early due to being wet to the skin, picked a bad day! I will try to be more diligent about posting our maintenance trips out there, both before and after, and hope others will...

Re: One Tree on Elk Mountain

I spent about 4 hours making my way to the summit of Elk today taking care of the worst of the brushy spots (there were many to deal with). Also cut out the smaller trees and removed staubs on the downed tree reported yesterday. There is now a fresh register book for the season as well. Wish I had t...
