Trail Crew Masochists:
How about this for a fun proposition: let’s gather at the Park and Ride in south Mt. Shasta, burn $7.50/gallon gas to drive out to Cabin Creek, go to the bottom of the trail, and remove poison oak? Sounds like a blast, doesn’t it?
We’ve cleared the top end of the trail and have only the bottom portion (perhaps 25%) left. If you don’t want to mess with poison oak, you can clear trees, branches, and other debris. Also, you could just wield a fine rake and fling the cut poison oak to the side. We’ve done this carefully in the past (including using power equipment) and haven’t gotten a problem with the poison oak.
It takes about 40 minutes to get out there and we’ll probably work for about 2-3 hours.
How could you miss this?
