Trip Leader's Report


Trip Leader: David K. Robert P, Stephen C, Boon H, David.

This trip was part of the Buckeye Trail Project, running through the Winter of 2003-2004.

Trailwork Plan

Brushing, treading and restoring a lost switchback between Cruickshank Ridge and the junction with the Cruickshank Trail.


Trail clear to Cruickshank Trail


Most of the work was spent restoring a two switchbacks lost for many years.

We stayed at the remote Outer Cruickshank Camp, convenient to a poison oak surrounded spring, where Boon had stashed a dozen beers...very welcome after a day's work! The whole Cruickshank area is an obvious archeological site, the soil is about 50% oyster shells.

The hike in was enlivened by a bee attack at Lower Cruickshank Camp...one person got stung, I managed to swat the bee that got tangled in my hair.

Weather and Conditions

Clear and pleasant
