Hawk's Hole Creek Crossing - Bridge Work in Progress

As reported by Ken:
Here are some photos of progress on the bridge. Footing forms are in. Now we're ready for inspection and then wait for some dry weather so we can get the concrete poured.

The trail is closed between signpost 14 and 17. Please stay out of the immediate area unless you're working on it. You can get a good view of theprogress from the northern rim of the ravine.

Two alders are reported to be down, over the trail, 75 paces East of post #6.
The larger is about 16" in diameter. They are easily negotiable for walkers.

There is a tree down between Hood Canal Drive and marker 16. It does not make the trail impassable but the hurdle is about 2 feet high. Volunteers will probably be out this weekend to clear the obstacle.
There has been volunteer trail improvement work west of Hansville road. Blackberries have been whacked back.
The trails are in generally good shape and the cool weather is perfect for enjoying the Hansville Greenway.

It has been a while since my post. Such a beautiful summer makes for consistently dry trail conditions. As pleasant as dry trails are, the Summer brought very low water levels in Lower Hawks pond, so I imagine pond residents are ready for the change of season.

There is one current alert for trail users and Hansville residents. There is a pack of feral dogs roaming the area.
They have been reported both east and west of the Greenway. They have been seen in a pair, a trio and one report counted four dogs, two black lab mixes and two brown dogs, one having the appearance of a German shepherd. They have attacked livestock and have shown aggression toward people.
It is advised to call 911 if you are menaced by dogs-at-large.
