September 14th, 2013 – Mt. Kinsman

A group of 8 Trailwrights spent a combined 76 hours installing rock steps and a rock water bar immediately above the third water crossing located two miles from the parking lot and just below the junction with Bald Peak spur. Additional rocks were placed as step stones at that area. Other rocks were quarried to be set as rock steps at a later date.

All in all, a great deal was accomplished despite high water levels that impeded the work progress. It was a day with cool weather that is great for moving rock, no rain to speak of and no bugs. Another work day will be needed to complete installation of rock steps in this area. – Bruce
