Of the 131 trees approximately 20 are step overs. The tree count does not include 7 trees leaning across the trail that might be safely removable. Many of the boardwalks on the West Fork trail are in bad shape with broken treads or sections completely removed from their original locations. There is a large section of the trail that is acting as a stream. Scouted trail 1204.2a toward Manzanares Lake - 1.6 mile connector has 68 trees down across the trail. Scouted the Main Fork trail from the 1153 / 1152 junction north approximately 1 mile and found 75 trees down across the trail. Scouted the Main Fork trail from the 1153 / 1152 junction south approximately 0.25 miles and found 31 trees down across the trail.0100Based on the cuttings (medium fine and all on one side of 9"+ diameter trees) it looks like a chainsaw has been used 0.2 mile inside of the Wilderness boundary.

There are about 6 step over tree that are 8"-12". There are 3 other trees that are 10"-24", and one 15" leaner. The first is about .8 from the trailhead, and the last one, the 24", is about 3.3 miles from trailhead. The others are all between those 2.
Weather was cool, breezy, and sunny. Many spots on the trail were muddy. I saw no one else hiking. Lots of gorgeous wildflowers. I had not been on this trail before, and it is lovely, although as the name suggests, it goes down into a basin to the Reservoir, so it is a bit of a climb back out.

The trail was muddy in the low areas, but most seemed to be staying in the treadway. The third crossing over Mandall Creek was a bit dicey with some wobbly trees. Otherwise, a beautiful day with lovely columbines. Only negative was the mosquitos, so put on the bug juice.

We also placed branches in a number of the muddy areas to keep people on the trail and to mitigate the mud. We did not have the equipment to clear water bars.
The trail is now clear of trees up about 5 miles from the parking lot. The trail above the bridge needs pruning/lopping. The trail above and below the bridge needs water bars or other mitigation for the water running down the trail which is making a "canyon" down the middle of the trail. The lack of water mitigation also is resulting in the trail widening in many places as hikers try to avoid the mud and water. Some of the water bars need to be cleared out, but most areas simply lack the bars altogether.
3030As mentioned above, the trail was very muddy in a number of areas and dry in others. It was hot and muggy, but a beautiful day. We finished just as the clouds were rolling in.

I turned around at 5 miles when to cross the stream across the trail would have required getting pretty wet.There are 7 trees 10"-24" that need cross cuts to removed them between miles 1.1 and 2.8 from the parking lot--NOT from the trail head. The one at 2.8 is nearly completely on the trail with lots of branches. A trail around it has been started. A crew of 2-3 could do the work easily in a day. As usual the trail could use lopping and pruning, especially past the bridge which is at mile 2.4 from the parking lot. The sign in box needs more sheets.6092The trail was muddy in spots before the bridge, which is normal for this time of year. Past the bridge, there is more mud and, in many areas, a lot of water is running down the trail. Perhaps more water bars would help, but it is mainly just the way it always is this early.

It was a sunny day in the 30s with 3-4” of snow on the ground.

Our primary objective was to identify the sections of trail immediately below the beaver pond that are impacted by seepage and have prioritized them for possible boardwalk construction.
Report to Maintenance Committee to scope, design, and budget boardwalk project; apply for grant funding.1010Bright sunny day, no wind, temps in the 30s. 4” of snow on ground. Road into Slavonia was tracked, but no foot tracks on trail. We encountered one elk hunter ascending from TH, well equipped but unfamiliar with the terrain.
