Trailday Recap: The Ridge and Wonderland Trails get some love.

Last Sunday, we had two crews on the hill giving two heavily used trails some fresh work.

The Ridge / Miranda:

Jack’s Queens of Dirt Racing led a great group of 35 folks and 11 kids to give the Ridge  and Miranda more maintenance, plus they continued their work on a paralleling trail to help spread users out along our northside access trail.  A big shout out to Javon Smith for leading a beginner trailbuilding session to give a group of folks the ins and outs about specific tools, trail construction and proper maintenance techniques.  Csaba and Chris helped lead the charge on the newer/upper section and a ton of quality work got done!

Wonderland:

Over near the top of the hill, Skagit Naturopathic led a crew of 13 folks fixing some of the worst spots on the bottom of Wonderland trail (aka, Naughty Nellie) got a big pass of drainage and trail tread repairs.  When the crew dug into several spots, they ended up being a pandora’s box of red rot that needed to be fully excavated and then filled with rock and dirt.  The crew decided to completely reroute one of the muddiest sections of the trail slightly uphill so the water will  have somewhere to go.   There will be more work on Wonderland in the coming month to knock out the other sections that need more drainage.
