Trail crew works to keep it going
It was a chilly morning as the moon set over Purgatory Creek Natural Area. A few hardy souls anxious to work through the first holiday hurdle of too much good food prepared to improve Dante’s Trail from the Hunter Road trail head. Mostly loping dead branches from drought-stricken trees one group coursed through Nimrod Trail alongside dam #5. Others using weed-wackers cleaned up the overgrown Johnson and KR bluestem grasses. Both are non-native and invasive. Another team scouted a potential alternate trail when floods (rare, they may be) make Dante’s an impassable journey.
