This was a scheduled trail maintenance event. The object of this project was to cut back the vegetation on the badly overgrown sections of the trail. The plan was to begin work at the upper end of the trail and work downhill, then hiking down to Piuma Road when work was complete. We were using 4 power tools. There were 10 SMMTC volunteers present. Met at the dirt pull out near the BBT on Piuma Road. Loaded tools in one truck and carpooled to the BBT connector tail on Stunt Road. Hiked in about one mile before beginning work. The trail in this area was badly overgrown with black mustard, thistle and sage. We used two weed whackers and two brush trimmers to cut back the overgrowth, widening the trail corridor significantly. Six crewmembers followed the power tools to clear the cutting from the trail. We changed operators on the power tools frequently. After clearing approximately .7 mile of trail we stopped work and began the hike back to the meeting place.
