This was the first of several special trail workdays to restore the Upper Sycamore Canyon Trail. The trail crew installed some temporary repairs, which were suitable for hikers, but did not resolve the hazardous conditions for equestrians. Several special, weekday, workdays have been added to the regular weekly trail maintenance schedule to accomplish this project. The major part of the project involves the construction of a large, dry masonry, retaining wall. Rocks and soil will then be used to backfill behind the wall to develop a smooth, unobstructed trail tread. Additional tasks will be to install drains and other improvements above the damaged area to reduce future water runoff from damaging the trail. When completed, the project will result in a trail which will be safer and provide a more pleasant trail experience for all trail users. The primary tasks for this work day was to clear fallen trees/limbs and other debris from the work area. In addition, many, large rocks were stockpiled for the next phase of the project. There were six volunteers present. Began work. Cut down and removed several small, dead trees. Cut up and removed several downed trees and large limbs from the work area. Lopped back the live, new growth. Removed organic material and other debris from the work area. Began to dig out the footing for the future retaining wall. Collected and stockpiled many large rocks to be used in the wall. Total volunteer hours: 6 Volunteers x 5 hours = 30 hours Feet of trail maintained: NA
