Gold Creek Footlog

Above, after the log is in place the hand rail supports are spaced out, these supports carry the weight of the hand rail.

Right, hand rail supports are installed on the side of the log

Below, a modified chain saw attached to the cables does the actual pulling.

Lower right, what was a log is now a foot bridge complete with handrail

Volunteers young and old participated in the construction of this footlog, a bridge designed to carry hikers over waterways that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to cross. Projects such as this require many hands and even more hours to achieve, but the positive results can enhance our forests for many

lifetimes.
