Adopt a trail. There was a good turnout for the opening of Miller jeep trail. The club who is responsible for Yellow Jacket was a no show. The Trailblazers ran Yellow Jacket and cleared the trail. The loppers worked well. It was really overgrown. The Club did a lot of work. Miller is now open on both sides.
