BearPaw-Tacoma Pass Regrade #1

Project dates: 8/2/2019 - 8/4/2019
Project type:
Volunteer group: North 350 Blades
Agency: Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest: Cle Elum RD
Crew leader Jack Jensen
Elevation (ft) 4726
Project description: This project is a continuation of the trailwork done over the last 2 years (CC100 Crew) in this location. The intent is to do a complete regrade of a bounded section starting at BearPaw Butte and continuing down to Tacoma Pass. This is a multi-year project. It's all dirt work but it should be easy and fun. The walk from camp to the work site will be short. Primarily we'll be widening the trail back to standard width. The area is a mix of old-growth and 2nd-growth timber, and elevation change is minimal in this area. This has been a fun project the last 2 years, so expect to have a good time with good food.
