Braille Trail Ready for Rain in the Demo Forest

06 December 2009

38 brave souls started the Soquel Demonstration Forest Trailwork season off with a bang. Half of the volunteers drove up Sulphur Springs to Ridge and worked their way down Braille. The other half started at the bottom of Braille and worked their way up. We built a number of cool features and got the trails ready for rain. It was just in time, the rain started as we were packing up and the storm rolled in. A big thank you to everyone that help start the season out right!
