We’ll be working on the new “Bear Springs” segment of Gateway Phase II this Saturday. If you want it easy, meet me (JH) at the corner of Old McCloud Rd. and South Mt. Shasta Blvd. at about 8:50 am (just across the street from Seven Suns Café and next to the old gas station). We’ll depart there just before 9 am and drive up Old McCloud together in a caravan. Takes about 10 minutes to the trail.
If you go on your own: Take Old McCloud Road / FR 31 east from S Mt Shasta Blvd for almost 2-1/2 miles to the old RR track crossing. Continue on FR 31 another 1-1/2 miles beyond the old RR tracks then turn left on FR40N76. Banners have been hung at this left turn. Go straight about ¼ mile, then take the R turn up a somewhat rutted road for another 3/8 mile, where you’ll find a bunch of people waiting.
Bring water and gloves; we’ll have the tools. Be a part of creating a new trail!
