The SaddleBrooke Hiking Club has completed three trail work events so far in 2015 on the Oracle Passage of the Arizona National Scenic Trail. Work efforts were focused on two miles of trail going north from the American Flag Ranch to Webb Road northeast of Oracle. This section required some extensive brushing and rebuilding of trail around areas of significant water erosion.
Most recently 13 volunteers under the guidance of Shawn Redfield and Don Washco of the Arizona Trail Association were pleased to make a difference on the Arizona National Scenic Trail. They also enjoyed seeing many spring flowers along the trail. Following this third work event, a celebration was held at the Patio Cafe in Oracle.
Trail work events will continue in the cooler temperatures of fall. To volunteer contact Elisabeth Wheeler at 818-1547 or Mary Croft at 651-270-1660, Arizona Trail co-stewards with the SaddleBrooke Hiking Club.
