|Green Line #6 Reroute
Thanks to everyone who came out in the snow to help get the project started on 12.2.06 by de-brushing the first two
thirds of the new route, which already looks sweet. We will continue working over the winter at the regular
scheduled work parties to progress forward and hopefully have it wrapped up by April. With DNR's help we will
begin using heavier equipment now that it has dried out since November's record rain, in combination with manual
efforts. Some parts of the trail building process are best done by hand. Come out and help!!! See you next month.

The trail was originally built straight
down an old rail road grade, bad.
The trail provided the perfect route
for water to drain, down its length,
causing serious erosion and creating
serious hazards to due its depth and
concealed roots and stumps..."The
Trough of Doom". The new trail will
provide effective water drainage in
order to mitigate erosion and a more
enjoyable and esthetic route through
Just outside of Fall Creek as you
head towards The Peak.
