forestserviceupdateVolunteers from Back Country Horsemen of California, Almanor Recreation and Parks District, and Chico Velo Trailworks recently completed a two-day crosscut saw certification course organized by Lassen National Forest.

Hosted at the Forest’s Almanor Ranger District, the two-day crosscut program taught volunteers some of the complex skills needed to maintain trails.  Lassen National Forest District Fuels Officer Patrick Doyle led the course, with assistance from Fire Prevention Technician Jim Rust.

The first training day was classroom based, while the second day took volunteers out into the field.  Using crosscut saws with oversight from course instructors, the volunteers successfully logged out the Deer Creek Trail from the Red Bridge on Highway 32 down to the fish ladder.

“Volunteers are essential to the success of the Almanor Ranger District’s trails program,” said Megan Mullowney, recreation and lands staff officer at the Almanor Ranger District. “We really appreciate the time, dedication, and energy that our volunteers devote to helping manage our trail system.”
