The SMMTC trail crew and a CSUCI Trail Corp volunteer met at the Wendy & Potrero trailhead. Project briefings and safety talk were presented. We discussed ways to clear the trail and maintain existing widths. There was a substantial amount of non-native grass to be dealt with.
Shuttled into the park in 3 vehicles. Handed out tools and placed crew into 3 groups.
Norm & Sharon, Greg, George & Dave worked the first quarter mile of trail. Brush was trimmed and removed. Other crew members walked up to the point we left off in April. Greg, George & Dave worked their way up the trail to where the rest of the crew was working. Greg, Christopher and Jon van Gorder leapfrogged up the trail. Kirsten, Ruth, Jon Sheldon, & Carlyn tackled many sections of the trail where the grass was encroaching.
Lunch was taken alongside the trail – taking advantage of the shade.
Resumed work. We did our best to trim encroaching grasses & brush but refrained from removing too much brush. We kept the trail narrow in many spots and where the trail spread out a bit on the older roadbed did our best to not widen excessively. One existing drain was cleared of silt.
Returned to vehicles.
