Mission Hill Trail

Chips Held In Place By Poles

Lake Geneva Campus, Wisconsin

George Williams College


chips pulled back for pole placement   Poles in place at trail's edge
Chips were raked back to allow for logs to be lain and anchored into the ground. Hundreds of students used the trail annually and there was danger during inclement weather of their slipping down a ten-foot bank.   Naomi tied a rope to the upright poles that were sunk into the soil about two feet to hold the logs in place. A permanent rail would be added by the next Elderhostel group.
