Thank you for widening the trails and removing the broken mesh on #5. However now, several boards are loose and present a hazard to trip on. I did! LOL ... We also walked the entire beach and gave a few newcomers/first timers directions and information as requested. Hours are per person

Cindy Lou and Whit and I walked the trail from Ivy Road to the bench and removed lots of blackberry vines and salal and ferns. Whit used a weedwhacker to widen the trail to the east of the bench and Cindy Lou and I clipped vines and tossed all the debris back into the forest.

Cleared overgrowth on Henry Hollow Dog Park shrubs and fence line adjacent to shrubs. Thanked a lady (Marissa I think) who has been adding water to them, a gallon at a time. Remainder of the fence line is still overgrown.

All trails are clear, but getting narrow in places. The Ghost/Indian pipes are in full bloom and the mosquitos are very hungry! We cleared debris and whacked away on the bushes. Hours are per person.

Watered shrubs at Henry Hollow Dog Park for first time. The shrubs are in surprisingly good shape. Some die off in the lower branches, probably due to being shaded by weeds. The fence line is overgrown on the west particularly, growing over the shrubs. No sign of deer damage. Needs a work crew to weed whip the fence line. This will help to control the tick population.

Trails are mostly clear, but narrow in places. We cleared a lot of debris/cuttings on #15 Howard Adams. We also cleared some long branches or a small tree that fell on South Rim #12 (no photos). We also removed what we could off an obstruction on West Rim #14 but its still half way obstructing the trail located about half way through (photos attached). There are 2 trees across # 7 right at the junction with #6 (photos attached). AND .... Bugger is so ready to fledge! Hours are per person

The trails are basically clear, but very narrow. There were a lot of debris from the recent windstorm on the trails that we cleared and we also cut back/whacked a lot of stinging nettles and sticker bushes, but it's not enough.

We also walked down to the beach in search of the eagles nest and found Mama C sitting in it. There were lots of people enjoying the beach and U-Haul loading stuff from the Wooden Boat House. SAD!

There's a big 2 feet wide tree down in the middle of the Sockeye #3 trail. It may be too big for one person alone to tackle? It may be difficult to climb over for some people. Otherwise the trails are in pretty good shape, although narrow in places, We did the usual whacking of bushes and clearing debris. Hours are per person

Trails are clear and in good shape including the neighborhood trail, which has been cut and groomed. Thank you to who did this. I cut back some more bushes at the lake to open up the view a little more. It's nice to see the lake from the beaver trail there at the end of #7. We also whacked some bushes, snacked on ripe berries and cleared debris. Hours are per person
