This was a scheduled trail maintenance project. This section of the Backbone Trail was heavily impacted by the Woolsey fire a few weeks ago. The objective of today's project was to assist NPS with remediation efforts on this section of the trail. There were 5 volunteers and two NPS staff present. Met at the Sandstone Peak parking lot. Began work. Hiked up the trail to the stairs which lead up to the peak (1.5 mi). On the way, the NPS leader flagged many drains to be cleaned or installed. The stairs were heavily damaged by the fire. We remove the mains of the timbers and hardware and moved them a safe distance away. Under the direction of the NPS leader, we cut in a small new, temporary trail which circumvents the area of the stairs and provides a safe access to the peak. After lunch, we began the hike back toward the parking lot. Beginning at the top of the trail, we began to clean out or install the flagged drains. We managed to service several drains on the way down. Arrived at the parking lot. Completed project. This trail is in terrible condition. The tread has been neglected for several years and there is much erosion in need off attention. There are many more drains to be serviced – this is the first of several trips require just to try to improve the drainage. While our work is significant, at best, it only slows the derogation of the trail. The trail needs major attention to restore it to NPS trail standards. Total volunteer hours: 5 Volunteers x 6 hours = 30 hours Feet of trail serviced: 1,050
