Repairing a Soggy Approach to “Traildog Bridge” – June 1, 2017

Yesterday, a team of Traildogs attacked the perennially soggy approach to “Traildog Bridge” on LOViT’s Section 1, not too far from the Tompkins Bend Pavilion and Trailhead.

We had a good and enthusiastic team that included better-late-than-never help from a US Army Corps of Engineers bobcat and its driver, which we appreciated, along with the USACE-donated pavers and gravel.

The new approach got a good test immediately as the rains came with a vengeance as the last load of gravel was spread and our tools were gathered.

There was insult to injury, as the storm knocked out power in the area, so rather than a Shangri-La lunch, some of the soggy Traildogs had to settle for pie!!!

It was a good day on the Trail!
