    Jim @kioti is looking for some help working on Meadow trail in Aliso and Wood Canyon Wilderness Park tomorrow morning. 10:15 am meet time at the main lot across from the LDS church off of Alicia Parkway. This time he has explicit permission from the ranger to work weather the park is open or closed.

    I know @knucklebuster is already on board. I have daughter duty tomorrow morning, so I am out. A couple more years and she can start digging too!

    Respond here if you can do this. He could use 2-4 more people. He has tools.

    I'm not sure if Jim gets on here, but please join us! We are meeting at 10:15 at the Aliso Ranger station as Herz mentions. Usually the rangers gives us a vehicle pass to park in the main lot (don't need the $3). I'll be in an old blue Bronco. Hope to see you.

    Hello @James Foley Thanks for joining in on the trail work. I hope everything went well.

    And thanks for jumping in to IMTB. Glad to have another from the LB. That makes three, after Taylor and @StrandLeper departed.

    We had a group of six. The park was "closed". Hiked up to the top and started working down. I was surprised the dirt was kinda hard to work with imo, hard crust on top and damp clompy clayee stuff underneath. Been a couple years since I worked on Meadows. Some of us peeled off early ~3 after getting most the way down to the (confounded) bridge that is roughly half way. Not sure how much further the rest got done. Mostly just damage repair, rut filling and drainage. No new berms that I'm aware of. Good group to do some good hard manual labor with :thumbsup:

    Wonder if Aliso will be open tomorrow (and early enough for me to sneak a ride in before work)

    Probably could have been open today based on the condition of Meadows. But there's a spot right at the beginning of Wood Canyon fire road that's a muddy mess, probably why it's closed since almost everyone from that side has to go through there.

    It was nice meeting and working with you fellas. Was my first time in the park and really dug it. I did manage to take one picture before I got in the zone. Now just need to get back out there and ride it.
