New Trail Day

Over the past month, we have been blazing a trail through the forest behind our house to reach a patch of daffodils that Maia enjoys. The forest is an HOA common area featuring impenetrable brambles, poison ivy, and twenty years of trash dumped by renters in the houses behind us. After the fifth time stepping over a fallen fencepost studded with nails, I decided that a trail would be worthwhile.

We hauled out tons of garbage and ancient poison ivy vines two inches thick, then raked a trail that goes in a small circle, allowing Maia to burn energy while we sit on stumps in the middle. There are three named sections of the trail: Dirt Trail, Daffodil Path, and Umbrella Tree Trail.

On Friday afternoon, we spread 86 cubic feet of pine bark mulch on the trail, resulting in a pleasant mud-free experience.

I'm currently checking with my local BSA to see if I can get some Eagle Scout credit for my work.

Here is Maia enjoying her new trail by running to the finish line.
