Trail work reports archive

It was cloudy and drizzly on the coast on Saturday morning, but up at Pioneer Mail on Mt. Laguna, it was a beautiful sunny morning.  Just a light wind so as the day warmed up, it was ideal conditions for trail work.  And work we did, as evidenced by the photos.  We met up with Wil, Zack and Greg of the USFS and our fearless band of ceanothus killers headed south on the PCT.  Scott Mills and I traded off for running The Obliterator and Jim Crosson and Jeff Conery provided the finishing touches for a picture perfect trail.  Post-work, we drove over to Todd's cabin for a nice lunch (thanks to Todd for the use of the same).  Everyone was good and hungry and we made quick work of some sandwiches, chips, cookies and beer.  
Next month, the plan is to launch a major assault on the overgrowth on the Secret Canyon trail.  Our dates for this are January 5 and 19 and February 2.  This is a wonderful trail that has been long neglected.  It's 16 miles, one way, or in other words, a nice 50K route.  Much of the trail goes through the Pine Creek wilderness and therefore all of our work will be with hand tools.  So, I really want to encourage lots of folks to come out and lend a hand.  Please sign up on line at or drop me a note at  

Happy Holidays and Happy Running to all!
