This was a scheduled, special project. The object of this project was to mitigate a potential erosion problem on and near the Staircase Beach Access Trail. We worked on this trail last fall, filling trenches, building two retaining walls and widening of the trail. Shortly after or work, there was a small brush fire near the trail. In fighting the fire, the fire crew cut a fire break on the slope near the trail, leaving a completely bare strip of slope. Not only did the firebreak leave an area susceptible to massive erosion, it also drained directly onto the trail creating a future serious erosion problem on the trail. Our objective today was to install some waddles on the slope and to install a drain near the bottom of the firebreak to divert water away from the trail. State Parks supported this project by purchasing the materials required. There were 6 SMMTC volunteers present. Met at the beach parking lot, near the firebreak. Two, twenty-five foot waddles had been dropped off nearby. We cut the waddles in half and began installing them across the firebreak. Other crew members began building an armored drain near the bottom of the firebreak. A State Parks employee arrives with two additional waddles. We installed the new waddles with the others. Total volunteer hours: 6 Volunteers x 3 hours = 18 hours Feet of trail maintained: NA
