Krister Raasoch with Art and Harry, David Weisel, Matt Edson, John Hudachek, Trails Chief John Herrick and Pisgah Park manager Whip Newell met at the Reservoir Road Trailhead in Hinsdale at 9:00 am.  John Herrick and his John Deere tractor rake contoured the Reservoir Road hill between Route 119 and the first electric wires.  The rest of the crew used shovels and rakes to smooth out the gravel and remove the large stones.  We dug two water bars to channel water to the ditch.  We also removed a dead tree overhanging the road.

We then drove to the Visitor Center on Old Chesterfield Road in Winchester.  We cleaned up the area north of the Visitor Center that was filled with branches and debris from a recent timber harvest.  Krister cut 3 dead birch trees around the picnic table area.  John used his tractor to push branches and old logs down the hill out of view of the picnic tables.
