Clearing Gateway Trails

Over the past few weeks, the Mount Shasta Trail Association volunteer chainsaw crew (along with a few other unnamed trail angels) has been removing downed trees and brush from the trails so the rest of us can enjoy hiking and riding. We recently identified an eighty footer leaning over the Strawberry Valley Trail that was an obvious hazard. Given its size and danger, we called Josh McNulty and his gang of US Forest Service chainsaw specialists. They chunked this tree off the trail and will go back later, untangle it from the adjacent trees, and put it on the ground. Thanks to our USFS partners, and all our volunteers.
