"Ken will be doing trail work Oct 16-31 if anyone is interested in constructing new sections of the Buffalo River Trail."

That would be Ken Smith. A friend put this on the ACC board. Just passin it along. I know last year they were working over toward Hwy 14 area.

That sure would be a beautiful place to so some trailwork. If you go, don't fall off the cliffs next to the waterfalls, the trail runs really close.

I will be up there the last week 24th-31 with the Ozark Society Alumni group. The week before The American Hiking Society has a group coming in.

It is a great area to work in and yes some of it is really steep and hard to work on. Not sure exactly where we will be working this fall. We worked around South Maumee last spring back toward Spring Creek.

LOL. From what I remember, the areas above the falls were pretty much flat benchs and fairly clear, sort of glade like in places It looked like a little raking would finish most the trail by the falls. Just stand on the opposite side of the trail from the cliffs!

Not sure where you're referring to specifically Coldspring. I've worked on the sections which aren't officially open yet on both sides of Spring Creek and a lot of it was very steep and hard to work on.
