    Post BCT de-claw report

    Over the weekend Sonoran Expeditions hosted a 2 day pruning session on the Black Canyon Trail. The goal was to cut back the Cat Claw Acacia on some of the most grown over sections. A small group of volunteers were able to completely clear the Antelope Creek section and a few miles south of Gloriana Mine.

    Sonoran Ex provided volunteers with BBQ cook out Saturday night and breakfast in the morning.

    While we were please to log a combined 36 hours of labor on the trail the turnout was low. A total of four volunteers (including SonEx owner Brob McPherson) were able to clear apprx 8 miles of combined trail. There is much more work that needs to be done to get the trail back into its glory.

    Stay tuned for details on round 2 of De-Claw the BCT. Cheers!

    Thank you for your hard work. I went out and cleared some cat claw on a few miles of the AZT a few weeks back, and I can attest it is not a fun job.

    Thank you so much for your efforts! I love the section and am hoping to ride it several times this season. I will look for round 2 and hope to be able to help out.
    Thanks again!
