This was a routine trail maintenance project. The objective of this project was to perform routine trail maintenance, primarily brushing, on the Saddle Creek Trail. We have worked on this section of the Backbone Trail twice recently. One session from the bottom of the trail, off of Piuna Road, and once from the top off of Stunt Road. On this trip we intended to work on the middle section. Our plan was to meet at the trailhead on Piuma Road, leave some vehicles there, and then be shuttled to the trailhead on Stunt Road. We had 9 volunteers for the project. Met at the trailhead on Piuma Road. Arranged carpool and shuttled to the trail head on Stunt Road. Arrived at the Stunt Road trailhead. Conducted safety and tool talks. We had three gas powered brush cutters. We broke up into three mini crews with a power tool in each crew. Hiked down the trail to the spot where we stopped work on the last trip here. Began the work about.5 miles down the trail (where we finished work at the last work event). The three mini crews separated and began work at different locations on the trail. We then leapfrogged each other working our way downhill. Fortunately, the tread on must of this section of trail was in pretty good condition. We only performed brushing and did no tread work. Stopped work and began hike down to the Piuma trailhead. Arrived back at the Piuma Trailhead. Shuttled drivers back to the vehicles on Stunt Road. Project complete. Total volunteer hours: 9 Volunteers x 6 hours = 54 hours Feet of trail maintained: 5, 000
