This was a scheduled trail maintenance project. This section of the Backbone Trail was heavily impacted by the Woolsey fire a few weeks ago. This was the third
in a series of work days to assist NPS with remediation efforts on this section of the trail.
There were 10 volunteers present. Hiked up the trail to point where we left of off on the last trip (approximately 1.0 mile). The NPS leader had previously
flagged the locations where she wanted drains cleaned or installed. We began working our way downhill working at all the flagged areas. We cleaned/installed
10 drains. At the last location, we uncovered the intake end of an old culvert. We installed new drainage features to direct water into the culvert.
This will prevent future damage to three existing washouts on the trail. This trail is in terrible condition. The tread has been neglected for several years
and there is much erosion in need of attention. There are many more drains to be serviced - this was the third of several trips required 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 (with heavy
equipment) to restore it to NPS trail standards. Total volunteer hours: 10 Volunteers x 6 hours = 60 hours Feet of trail serviced: 2,600
