The Treasure State ATV Association and the Magic City 4x4 Association participated in a trail maintenance project on switchback road 2096 in the Pryor Mountains Saturday, August 15, 2015. Three forest service rangers arrived with a good sized Melroe Bobcat with a nice sized blade. We started at the top of the switchback and worked our way down to Crooked Creek Road. The Bobcat leveled out most of the trail. Volunteers helped move rocks, tree branches, old burnt trees and other material. Thanks to the FS rangers, Magic City 4x4 participants, President Chet Groves, Fred Rodda and my wife. It was a hot but productive day.
