Sandstone Peak Trail

NPS - Circle X Ranch

National Trails Day 2009

On National Trails Day this year we repaired the steps going up to Sandstone Peak. This project had originally been scheduled to do in December 2008, to be led by Al Bandel, however Al passed away prior to the project date. The old steps were in very bad shape from erosion and many years of use. The new steps are a huge improvement. I'm sure Al would have been very proud of the result.

Below are still photos and a video from the event.

Thank you to California State Parks and Shane Smith for the video!
