Default Kaner work party report

This past Saturday Jayw and I headed up to help out with the work party on trail 676, Kaner. We arrived and met up with Gleed Boyz Atkins, Blaine and Brent, and a large group of Shindig Wheelers. After an interesting safety meeting with the forest service reps we headed up to Kaner to walk through the work for the day. We were working on a lower section of the trail, off of rd 1901, just west of the 1903 intersection. Atkins Landscaping generously donated the use of a mini excavator and operators. The FS provided a smaller excavator and a Sweco mini dozer and various hand tools and supplies. Besides the 4 wheel drive enthusiasts, there were 8 or 9 FS employees in attendance, including district ranger Irene Davidson.The overall plan for the day was to decommission a section of unsustainable trail, relocate the trail to an existing road that parallels the existing route, and put in a short new section of trail.

Heading up to the trail.
