    We selected the streak we did climb because a side view suggested it might not be as steep at the top as other lines we examined, but the view from underneath still shocked us so much we just stopped looking and thinking about what was up there.

Jawbone Canyon Trail Project

On Saturday (Jan 28th) a group of voluteers made the trek to Pinnacles National Park to assist in the Jawbone Canyon Trail Project. The following is a trip report submitted by FOP's President Bruce Hildenbrand.

The Jawbone Trail Project

Pinnacles National Park is planning to open the Jawbone Canyon Trail in Spring 2017. The new, 2-mile trail will connect the west side Visitor Contact Station with the parking lot and overflow parking to the north.

Friends of Pinnacles was asked by the park service to help with the building of two bridges. The work involved carrying forty 50-lb redwood planks to the two bridge sites.

Volunteers Aaron McDonald, Bee Vadakan, Richard Bassman, and Jon Beck (who came all the way from San Diego!) along with Bruce Hildenbrand were joined by trail boss Lisa Smith and Pinnacles NP Community Volunteer Ambassador Emily McDermott on a cool, but sunny January morning. Volunteer spirit was high and with everyone digging in and just getting it done the project was completed without incident.
