Graeagle Lions Club members recently completed a repair of the Frazier Falls bridge, which suffered major damage from last year’s winter. Maintaining the trail is one of the community projects the Graeagle Lions perform each year.
In 2008, the Graeagle Lions Club adopted the Frazier Falls Trail as an annual maintenance project. Working in conjunction with the Plumas National Forest, the club reports that members trim overgrown branches from the trail, sand and stain the benches and picnic tables, and repair and paint the railing that overlooks the 176-foot Frazier Falls.
This year, Evelyn Breedlove, partnership coordinator for PNF, provided project oversight for the Graeagle Lions Club to repair the bridge, which was damaged in last year’s heavy winter snow. The lumber used to replace the damaged rails was obtained by Breedlove from the Mount Hough Ranger District, where it was milled to the specifications for this project.
The Lions Club members provided the stain, tools, and human effort to complete this coordinated effort. When asked why the Lions chose to help maintain the Frazier Falls Trail, Lion Roger Henderson said, “Besides being fun and being part of a great Lions team, I am proud of the fact that hundreds of visitors, both able-bodied and handicapped individuals in wheelchairs, can enjoy this beautiful place.”
