The work has begun in earnest on the Shenandoah Mountain 100 course. Andrew Jasper helped me on the lower slopes of Lynn Trail while Ryan Fawley and Matt Smith went straight for the tall grass on Wolf Ridge Trail. Looks like a few more days will be spent on Wolf Ridge Trail. Last year we put in close to 100 man hours clearing this trail because of the Gypsy Moth devastation. Looks like we could hit that again for 2009. Chestnut Ridge alonng the Wild Oak Trail just below Little Bald Knob is next weeks mission.
