On July 28, 2020 a group of seven STMS volunteers did a work bee and completed maintenance work on the Azure Lake trail and on the Frances Creek Forest Service Road. On the Frances Creek FSR they flattened down a big bump that was on the road for a few years made of dirt and rock debris. They also pulled some big rocks off the road with pry bars and the strength of an enthusiastic team. They all went up to the second part of the trail after the second bridge crossing, where the trail needed the most attention. Seventeen trees were cleared on this part of the trail, some engineering was done to re-route the trail and loppers were used to cut all the growing vegetation along different parts of the trail. Thanks to our volunteers for working to keep the trails maintained.
