Twenty-five volunteers from the Humboldt Trails Council's Volunteer Trail Stewards and a Humboldt State University dorm braved Saturday's rain and wind to hike 30 minutes (with shovels!) to the Beith Creek Loop Trail in the Sunny Brae Tract of the Arcata Community Forest on Saturday. They cleared brush from a 600 to 700 foot corridor where the current trail switchbacks will be rerouted. Thank you for building a trail that everyone will enjoy for many years to come!More about Saturday's volunteer work day
