 Wildcat Ridge Trail-E Peak
WOW...
Who are the trail adopters for the Wildcat Ridge Trail(up to E Peak)?
I was up there other day and the trail looks great! The adopters did great work.

Keep up the great work guys. :D :D

No. That falls outside of our responsibilities and is the job of the professional trail crews. That is on the list of imporvements that need working on.

The good news is that Silentcal finished up the last of the brushing (and there was A LOT of it.) So no vegitation smacking ya on the way up. Next up is blazes and cairns! :lol:

Thanks B.

By the way, I have heard that the rules on blazing and carins have changed. Is that true? Thanks again for all you do!

Yes, blazing rules have changed. Apparently blazing on rock has become real taboo (which makes sense since winter hikers never see a blazed rock :lol: .) So now we need to remove the rock blazes and transplant them to trees (which is going to be a bit more tough than it sounds because of the available tree sizes.)

Of course, following our trail is pretty straight forward anyways, and not too many people head up it in winter. But rules are rules. :D

B.

P.S. No thanks needed.....its actually kind of fun! (is it still work if its fun :wink: ?)

You learn quickly Grasshopper!! :lol:

Seriously, It's tough work but fun. That ladder does need some serious work. Hopefully my secretary put it into the work report we have to fill out. Blazing is indeed going to be a challenge, especially higher up the trail between the ski area and Wildcat E.

You bet I did. I also added to BOTH (I sent in the reports for 6/3 and 6/6 at the same time) that a footbridge across the Ellis would be nice. All three reports contain this plea. I wonder if they will listen or send the AMC hitsquad out to break my knees if I don't stop nagging :lol: .

The Glen Ellis bridge: I doubt it would happen, we have better luck seeing the ladder replaced.

I'll let you know when I need that favor Erin!

Wildcat Ridge Trail is as steep as they come. But the views rock!
