Rock Bar or Digging Bar

The Rock Bar, or as some call it, a Digging Bar is a primitive but vital tool for trail building. The Rock Bar is nothing but a long, solid and very heavy iron bar. If you've ever wondered how some of the giant rocks that are used on the trail have been moved into place, it's almost certain a Rock Bar was used to do so. Sometimes a winch is needed but with the right leverage all you need is one or two rock bars to get the job done. The rock bar can also be

used for digging post holes, breaking rocks and removing stumps. Because it's such a strong tool, it's best to use it rather than handle tools when trying to pry up a rock or root out of the ground. Handle tools can sometimes break when trying to remove large or stubborn objects.
