Dusy Ershim toilet construction update

We now have a toilet at Dusy Creek. Right when you get there,not at the point.
This was done in August.

East Lake now has a toilet. I went in a couple days early and dug the hole(jackhammer is in the wooden box). This was the last weekend in October.




There was a mess of roots.




Ran into rocks and had to scoot the hole over.

Supported the roof with 4X4 posts because of the fascia cracking on some facilities.

Along with the rubicon, this trail is on my list of "to do's," so thank you! I am sure it will get its use.

Very nice work, I could see myself getting real involved in this kind of stuff. I really enjoy the outdoors and building stuff, been doing that since I was a kid. Great job guys.

This has happened to three of our toilets on other trails, probably due to snow load.


This is how the problem was addressed on two toilets(so far)on Dusy before the problem arises, we're hoping this will prevent it from happening.

The prefabbed facility was picked up from the Forest Service work center by one trailer and taken to the trailhead, then it was distributed one wall per trailer.

Volunteers dug a hole half way down and ran into 3 big rocks, then Forest Service showed up and dug a new hole.




Putting in the bolts that hold the corners together.


Getting ready to repair a wall that was damaged on the way in.




Holding the front wall in place while it gets attached.


Shimming before tightening the bolts.


Installing hurricane ties.


Installing windows.


Installing drip edges.


Installing wire to keep marmots out. We usually use a heavier wire, but this was brought by mistake. It will be replaced with heavier wire later.


Putting the right blade on.


Cutting the hole for the louvered vent.
