And you may know about the "secret" trail along Croisan between Croisan Scenic Way and Spring Street.
|Skyline Trail at Sprague, Work Party March 2nd|
This Saturday, March 2nd, Mark Wigg and trail volunteers will be working on a northern section of the trail system. Mark writes:
We will be meeting at the first parking lot off Kuebler at Sprague HS at 9am Saturday March 2. Bring hoes, rakes, loppers, but no power tools.Mark also promises bonus lore: A beaver dam for urban naturalists, and even a ghost story - with recent sightings!
We have permission to work on the skyline trail extension. It is mostly hoe work. With a dozen people, we can complete a connection from the current loop to Joseph St. that would be suitable for hiking. I will have some hoes and pulaskis provided by our friends at Salem Parks, bring your own tools if you want. I promised the city that we would transplant any sword fern we need to remove from the trail. I will be there at 9 am and plan on working until noon.
If you'd like to help built trails inside the city, here's a great opportunity!
