On a sunny autumn Saturday at the end of October members of the Backcountry Horsemen gathered at the Cone Lake trailhead to rebuild damaged corrals.
Eight hard-working members of the High Country Unit of the Backcountry Horsemen travelled from Greenville, Susanville and Milford to work on the project.
They spent the day planting posts and bolting rails in place on two new corrals to replace ones that had been damaged from last winters snow load.
Cone Lake is the first of three corrals they will be rebuilding. said Janie Ackley, the Almanor Ranger Districts Resource Officer. The others are at the Caribou Lake and Hay Meadows trailheads. That work will be completed in 2018.
