Having fall around the corner we are assembling FLASH team to clear tons of tree falls on Sioux Hustler trail. Members of the crew should be in good physical shape and pack light, willing to cut trees and have fun. Brush cutting on the trip is not allowed.
Depending on the weather and trail conditions, group size and productivity our goal is to clear part of the trail from Devil's Cascades to the Camp site on Pageant Lake or to the camp site on the portage between Loon and Heritage lake. After the trail survey we estimate between 75 and 100 tree falls with half of them less than 4 inches in diameter.
We will drive for 5 hours on Friday from Twin Cities to the trail head and hike to the camp site on Devil's Cascades, be ready to hike with a head lamp. On Saturday we will clear as much as we can. And on Sunday we will hike back.
Main objective for that trip is to cut as many small trees as possible. During the spring there were a lot of heavy, wet snow in that area, which created tons of tree falls, primarily with small trees, and right now hiking on the trail is not only a pleasant experience, but sometimes annoying.
Join FLASH team to cut trees and don't forget you camera, that might be the color pick in this area.
