This was a special project to repair trail damage resulting from last winter's heavy rains. This area was worked in the spring, but this one spot could not be repaired at that time due to standing water and heavy mud. The area was now completely dried out and ready for remedial work. There were nine SMMTC volunteers present. One member of the Sierra Club Task force was also present. State Parks staff provided invaluable support, in preparation for and execution of the project.
Met at the parking lot at Trippet Ranch. Conducted project, and safety briefings. Hiked approximately .25 miles to the work site on the Musch Trail. The project involved replacing one old water bar and construction of two new timber steps filled with crush (gravel). The State Park employees had already prepositioned materials at the work site. This saved the volunteer crew probably several hours of additional work.
The remains of an old water bar timber was removed and replaced by a new timber and the drain was reshaped and groomed to provide effective drainage.
Two new eight inch steps, with seven foot landings and side rails were installed. The landing areas were filled with crush and topped with soil.
One new rock step was installed at a nearby location. Minor other trail grooming was performed in the immediate area.
Completed work and hiked back to the meeting place.
