This was a regularly scheduled trail maintenance event to address storm damage to the Musch Trail in Topanga State Park. A trail assessment was conducted with Jason Finley recently to identify the most pressing problems. Today’s work addressed a section of trail with two washouts and other erosion problems. Today we had eleven regular SMMTC volunteers and two Sierra Club members for a total of 13 volunteers. We were also assisted by Jason Finley and one other State Park employee, A total crew size of 15, Met at Musch Camp. Conducted event briefings and safety and tool talks. Hiked approximately .4 miles toward Trippet Ranch Parking lot to the work site. The work was totally tread work. The largest and most serious of the washouts was corrected by installing a 15 long by 3 high retaining wall, using steel posts and multiple lavers of hardware cloth. This involved digging a 15x3 trench, driving in 8 steel posts, and backfilling with rocks and soil. The second washout was of different nature and was corrected by widening the trail, filling trenches and installing new drainage, On the remaining section of trail many feet of trenches were filled and several new drainage features installed.. There is still a large amount of work to be done on this trail. Although we resolved several hazardous issues, the trail has other difficult and hazardous sections needing attention. The crew is scheduled to address several of these additional issues in the coming weeks. Total SMMTC volunteer hours: 11 Volunteers x 6 hours = 66 hours Feet of trail maintained: 480
