Trail after culvert and rock added

Work on private property near Double Branch Hole. Shawnee Trail Conservancy dump wagon and volunteer tractor spreading red gravel on newly worked trail. This trail was always very muddy and will have a good rock base for a hardened trail.

The work done here by hand is by volunteers on National Trail Day. This trail was also a very muddy trail that will have a good gravel base with the end result a dry all weather trail.

A new hitching rail was added fall of 07 for the Herod Trailhead located just North of Herod and West of the Garden of Gods area.
