The Bridge Initiative (TBI) Group April 5, 2014

On cold, windy day MNC Board members Eric Loop, Doug Wion and Chad Bell led an energetic groups of volunteers from The Bridge Initiative.

The entire group hiked the BLUE trail to Station 10, the rock pile at the top. From there, Eric took half and  proceeded east while doing trail trimming, picking up of trash and clearing branches from there to Station 9, the Tom Smyth overlook.

Doug and Chad took the other half and continued along the WHITE trail across the top to Station 11, the Northwest overlook. The group trimmed trails, picked up trash, cleaned up camp sites and cleared roughly 12 hangers/widowmakers and downed logs across the trail. Doug pointed out invasive species along the way that was eradicated. We then stopped at Lynch overlook for photos and proceeded down.

We’d like to thanks TBI for all their hard work. They were a pleasure to work with.
