May 22 work on Fred's Trail was a great success

On May 22 13 volunteers turned out in the morning rain to work on Fred's Trail. As the day progressed they turned an old, eroded, steep, scramble route into a still challenging, safer, more sustainable trail.

A strong and skilled group worked on steep and slippery terrain building crib and fill steps, stone steps and improving the dirt tread.

It's an impressive construction and in places even beautiful as stones were fit into the ground, one with its own fern garden intact.

Watch this site for the next work parties which will come up soon to complete the trail and revegetation planting.
