Another work weekend on the OHT with the Ozark Highlands Trail Association. The primary target this time was a bunch of trees on the trail east of the Richland Creek Wilderness between mile markers 141 and 142 – south of the landslide area. Seven of us were able to remove those trees, reroute about 100 yards of trail, and trim the brush along 1/2 mile of trail in that general area on Saturday, exceeding expectations.
On Sunday we broke camp at the Richland Creek Campground and two of us headed to the Fairview Campground to give some attention to a couple miles of trail east of there that have been neglected. The lead string trimmer ran out of string only halfway through, and then we ran out of fuel for the other trimmer 1/4 mile from the end – just as we were getting to the worst part where we hoped to concentrate our attention. Soooo, another trip will be needed but at least we made most of that section look like a hiking trail again.
