Laura Susmann, Jim Schfield, David Weisel, Krister Raasoch with Harry and Art, John Hudachek, Matt Edson, John Herrick and his John Deere tractor and Pisgah State Park Manager Whip Newell met at 9 am on Saturday, August 16th at the Kilburn Trailhead in Hinsdale. The goal of the day was to rebuild the decking and hand rails on the bridge on the northeast corner of the Kilburn at the end of the Kilburn Road.

First the old stringers were removed and the new stringers set into place.  We replaced the decking and hand rails with new lumber provided by the state that had been already cut and transported close to the bridge.  Gary Montgomery arrived around 1:00 to assist. We were done by 3:00 and back to our vehicles by 4:00.

Later Matt Edson and Gary Montgomery returned with additional lumber
and built the ramps and improved the tops of the hand rails.

Thanks to all for a job well done!
