Trail Maintenance

December 20, 2008

Chamberlain Trail

Point Mugu State Park

Today we approached the trail from the Sycamore Canyon side. Some of our crew began work a short ways in from the western terminus of the trail, while others headed further up to work just below Chamberlain Rock on repairing a section of badly eroded tread. Brush has been encroaching in on the trail throughout and the tread is uneven in a number of sections. We made significant improvements however further work still is needed on this trail.

The trail's namesake, Chamberlain Rock
