BTU Levee Work
BTU has started to work on the East Loop levee and have leveled the switchbacks and several other sections of trail. There are also several new gates across the top of the levee. The officers are trying to arrange a meeting with BTU to discuss the changes to the trail system. The trails on the East Side of the lake will need some major rerouting this year. Plans for this have been made and trails are being cut.
We will meet at 8am on Saturday the 12th The main priority is to reroute the section of the trail coming to bypass the switchbacks. James has already cut several sections of trail and it may be possible to finish the new sections this weekend. There are also several areas where deadfall needs to be cleared; these include New Cut, the West Loop before Little Warda, Munnerlyn Loop, and the Octopus.
