PCT to Benson Plateau

Post by bushwhacker » October 21st, 2016, 3:35 pm

There are a couple of trees that came down over the PCT on the way up to Benson. It's a challenge to get past them but doable (if you don't mind getting a bit dirty).
These:

Are located here (about 3/4 of a mile from the Herman/PCT junction):

We have a crew working there on Saturday, posting signs and clearing logs. We passed this info on to them.
Thanks!

Logs were cleared on Saturday 10/29/16 by a volunteer PCTA crew. One overhanging log was limbed and left about 9 feet above the tread. We'll see if it chooses to drop over the winter.
