This was a scheduled joint project with students from CSUCI. The object of this project was to perform routine trail maintenance on the Nicholas Flats Trail. We havent worked on this section of trail in at least 3 years, so there was much work to be done. There were 6 CSUCI Students and 14 SMMTC volunteers present.
Met at the Leo Carrillo State Park day use parking lot. Three of the SMMTC volunteers, Greg Sweel, John Kross and Barry Dydyk. Began brushing the trail using the power brush trimmers. Other volunteers waited at the meeting place for the students.
Students arrive. Held tool talk and safety briefings. Began work at the trail head, across the street. We split into two crews. The students and some crewleaders began by clearing the brush cuttings left behind by the earlier workers. The remaining SMMTC volunteers proceeded up the trail ahead of the brush cutter to begin tread work on the upper part of the trail. By the end of the work day, the combined crews had maintained about a quarter mile of trail. Clearing brush, cleaning drains, installing new drains and filling the trenches in the tread.
Total volunteer hours: 3 volunteers x 7 = 21 hours
17 Volunteers x 6 = 102 hours
Total hours = 123 hours Feet of trail maintained: 1,320
