Description:

I want to do a bit of work on the trail into our Brew Hut, clean up some stuff left by the logggers and hang a few trail markers where they seem a bit scarce.

This is an ideal time of year to do this as there is consolidated snow on the ground, covering the shrubberies and making walking easy, but not requiring snowshoes or skis.  A fairly good pair of boots would be nice, though.

The plan is to drive up to the trailhead, not real early but somewhat early, and spend an hour or so picking up stuff left by the logggers and throwing it off the path.  At the end of this we should have a nice 150m path connecting the new parking spot to the old trail.  While we are doing this, we will think about all the firewood left by the loggers and whether we should get a helicopter to fly it up to the Hut.  Next we will head up the old trail to the Brew Hut.  This would normally involve around 3 hours of hiking, but if we take four hours, we can hang some trail markers in places where they have fallen off, or been destroyed.  No special tools will be required, though I will supply a hammer and a pruning saw and maybe a hatchet.

I want to spend Saturday night at the Hut, and if you have never been up there, this is a good opportunity.  I intend to stay the night.  If you are looking for a Saturday-only trip, you can still do useful work, hike to the Hut, and hike out again, but it makes for a somewhat long day, and you will need a car/driver that wants to do that, as I will be coming down Sunday.

If you are sure you want to do this, email me directly and I'll assign you to a guaranteed seat in my car.  Or you can sign up the usual way as interested, committed, etc.

The weather plays an important role in our stuff.  If it is truly horrible this weekend, we will do the path-building and maybe hang some markers, and head home.

Let us know if you want a day trip, an overnighter, or either.
