Weekend Postcard: Boggs Mountain State Forest

Winter is on its way in the northern hemisphere. Make sure to clear all those things that are meant to channel water: culverts, ditches, eaves, and the like. An ounce of prevention saves a ton of rock fill.

If memory serves, this damage happened on Boggs Road 400 above Spikenard Creek near John’s Trail. (see map below) I and a volunteer went out in a torrential rainstorm opening culverts, clearing inside ditches, with shovels. We just couldn’t be everywhere at once on the state forest’s 26 miles of dirt roads.
