Logging updates and Slash Burning
Here are several updates about logging on Galbraith below. Please be sure to scroll through everything. Thanks!
Slash Pile Burning:
As of the afternoon of November 15th, the foresters on Galbraith are starting to burn some of the large slash piles that have accumulated in several areas. They are doing this prior to planting activity and are beginning with the piles near Cedar Dust and then heading over to the Lone Wolf area next. This was supposed to start on Monday, but the winds were way too high for permitted burns the past couple of days.
We’ll keep you updated on their locations over the next week, but attached is a map of the various pile locations. This won’t affect trails or access, but there could be smoke going through certain sections of trail corridors (wind direction will affect this) and we’ll put some warning signs up – just in case.
We will have our crew with them at certain points, so they will pull bigger chunks of Cedar from the piles and set them aside for our use.
Closed: Middle SST, Air Chair and Candy:
Middle SST, Air Chair, Orient Express and Candy are all being harvested as of November 13th. Those trails are all signed closed and flagged off and were walked with the loggers last week.
Please note that the 1200 road and the Tower roads have a lot of vehicle traffic during weekdays, so please stay off of them, if possible.
Closed: Here to There, Kung Fu Theater, El Pollo, Tough Love and Pick Up Sticks
The area at the top of the wall still has a TON of activity as they process and load the logs up in that zone. As such, the Tower Road will have a lot of logging truck activity during the weekdays and we’d encourage folks to go up the Pigs or another way – if possible.
