Twenty members of the SaddleBrooke Hiking Club completed significant trail maintenance on the Oracle Passage of the Arizona Trail on March 15.
Catclaw and dead tree branches were removed from the trail. The trail was widened next to natural drainages and water barriers were developed to prevent trail erosion. After three hours of satisfying work our SaddleBrooke volunteers enjoyed a picnic lunch at the Kannally Ranch House patio in Oracle State Park. Zach McDonald and Wendi Lucas of the Arizona Trail Association hosted the lunch and provided assistance and support for the trail work. Future work events will be scheduled in the fall.
