2021 Trail Maintenance Year in Review

The Crew - after removing the rock obstacle.

The ebb and flow of the COVID pandemic continued to shape the trail work our crew performed in 2021. State Parks required our crew size at these events be limited in numbers of volunteers and specifically to crew that could provide proof of vaccination. Our Trail Days events were cancelled along with NPS Public Lands Day events. Our crew continued to focus on repairing trails from beginning to end.

Highlights for the year:

We fixed a segment on the BBT (Hondo Canyon) by re-routing a segment that had been falling into disrepair for the past few years. For that effort, several of the crew suffered from the large amounts of poison oak they removed! image of work
In January, we used a battery powered hammer drill, sledge hammers, and picks to flatten out a rock obstacle that had been causing issues for equestrians and hikers. Cage Creek Image
February thru April found us on the Old Boney Trail. This trail had not been worked in several years. Brush was removed, tread was repaired and drains were cleaned installed on several miles of trail. Hidden Pond trail was also worked. Map of trail worked on
