I have been hiking the Batona Trail for almost 25 years and I was disappointed to see that they knocked down about 25 yards of trees on both sides of the dirt road section about 3-4 miles north of the trailhead at Bass River. Anybody know what’s going on here?

They are making a fire break all along Oswego and Allen Road. They have completed cutting that portion of it but have not removed all the wood on Oswego close to 539. They are now going to cut large sections of woods along Allen road, or at least that was the plan.

I am happy they fixed both roads. Allen road is a dream right now. Oswego has some issues with sand and sticks and they certainly have damaged some property corners. However, I like what they have done.
