Logan Brook Lean-To Sill Replacement

White Cap District

It's sill replacement time! The trees we felled back in June have been drying (=becoming less heavy) so we can now replacing the rotting sills with these fresh logs. We're looking for about a half dozen volunteers to help do some final excavation, jack up the lean-to, and slide the new logs into place! It's slow but rewarding work! It’s a 1.3-mile hike with about 950 feet of elevation gain to access the campsite.
