Seneca Wilderness Loop trail work #8 (Honeysuckle removal)

Looking to get a few volunteers to help clear honeysuckle in the back section of the wilderness loop before it grows out and crowds the trail as it does every year. Will also be looking into some other possible improvements to the wilderness loop as well. Check back for updates.

    Has anyone seen or heard anything from Stacy? I think we may have chased her off. Haven't seen her since Hike, Bike and Paddle.

      Somehow I ended up in Texas last week and most of this week. I'll be back eventually!

    Sarah Wolff from Olmsted has asked if we would be willing to switch gears (Pun intended) Thursday night and give Olmsted a hand prepping trail corridors for the upcoming MTB Race on June 23rd. As good as Olmsted has been to us how could i possibly say no. As soon as i get a time and a meeting place I'll post an update.

      https://maps.google.co...­ Check the map and look for a white Toyota T100 truck with a topper. Just bring yourself, some water and/or a camelback. I'll have an needed tools and a few extra pairs of gloves. We typically go for 2 to 2.5 hours. Thanks for stepping up to help. Look forward to meeting you.

      The green arrow on the map is the location we are meeting.

    I had a chance to take a good look at whats left to be done yesterday . There is a sizable section near the beginning that will take some time and a few areas where the debris still needs to be pulled further off the trail. I feel 2 more trail work meetups should take care of.

    I hate to bail but I now have an appointment every Wednesday and either Tuesday or Thursday for the rest of the summer. I'll try to make that appointment on Tuesday's when possible.

    Tony... Ive been thinking similar thoughts along those lines myself. There are also a few areas that need to be hit again a little more thoroughly. I think maybe next week we take a look at how many people show up and if we have enough people we have 2 brake off and sweep the whole trail. If our numbers are however low we can do touch up work ect. the following week. I'll take a close look at everything on the Monday night ride.

    Brian... would it make sense to have two people dedicated to walking the whole loop - one to recut all the stumps that haven't been sprayed and one with herbicide to spray the freshly cut stumps? Some of the early stumps that were cut without being sprayed are growing 10 new shoots where the one was before. My guess is one cutter and one sprayer could cover the entire Wilderness Loop in under 3 hours. Just a thought. It might preserve all of the great work you've done already!

    I'll be there to help wherever you need it. Trimming these trails back is instant gratification. They are so much better now.

    We are definitely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. This coming meetup we will be clearing the section closer to the beginning that we missed due to where the clearing started. Matt Spalding from Olmsted is going to try and join us as well to help out with some chainsaw work. We will most likely be looking into other possible improvements to the loop next week as well before we shift our attention to helping out Olmsted with other sections in Cherokee/Seneca park trail system.
