Matt Edson, John Hudachek and Friends of Pisgah (FOP) trail chief John Herrick met at the Kilburn Trailhead on a cold, December morning at 10:00. With reports of trees down the group decided to hike and clear the Kilburn Loop.

The west side of the Kilburn loop was remarkably clear all the way down to the Kilburn dam.  We then decided to walk across the pond and bushwack to the east side of the Kilburn loop. Numerous trees were found fallen across the trail and were cleared.  Finding many dead birch hanging over the trail waiting to fall, we downed and cleared them from the trail too.  The group returned to the parking lot at 1:45.

No pictures were taken - it was too cold to remove gloves and retrieve a camera.  There was a good chance the camera would not have worked as cold as it was.
