Six of us tackled this trail with crosscut and bow (no chain) saws, pick mattocks and loppers, to cut out the dead fall. We got down maybe 3/4 mile, cutting out 14-16 dead trees laying across the trail, 3-4 rather large. One of the biggest was probably 18 inches in diameter, with many limbs to be removed, that was laying across a switch back corner. We all worked on it for maybe 30-40 minutes, cutting off the limbs and then cutting the main log in two places then wrestling it carefully off the trail and down the slope, all to clear only a few feet of trail. The sawing is a workout, the climb back up was brutal. I would hate to be doing that climb with a back pack. Some awesome views from the trail, looking down on the Wilderness of Rocks, Sabino Canyon, Tucson, Mt Wrightson, etc. Another great day on the trail.

Seven of us met up this morning to finish "de-logging" this connector to the AZT. We cut several 16-20 inch big ones, and a few smaller ones. Afterwards we had a break at a nice spot at the junction with the Wilderness of Rocks trail, which we took back to Marshall Gulch TH. Lunch again at the new restaurant - Sawmill - in Summerhaven, which is very nice. I could eat a bushel of their wings.
