This was a routine planned trail maintenance event. A crew of 12 met at the trailhead on Old Topanga Canyon Blvd. at 8:30 am. After signing-in and discussing the goals and objectives for today we distributed tools and proceeded up the trail. The crews broke into groups with the weed whackers and hedge trimmers leap frogging each other as they proceeded up through the meadows and oak woodlands. A couple of other groups followed to rake/clean cuttings, remove rocks, improve tread, and cut overhead branches using McLeods, loppers, pick-mattocks, and folding hand saws. Lots of plant growth from the abundant winter rains made for slow going; however, we continued further up restoring a well-groomed trail corridor. A large collapsed/eroded section of trail was filled in to level the tread. We made good progress, but didn’t quite make it to the ridge leading into Hondo Canyon. We ended work at 1:30 pm and then we hiked down the trail and arrived back at our meeting place at 2:00 pm. We cleared approximately 0.75 miles. There are some muddy areas which should continue to dry, but currently make for a challenge especially in a low spot just before the Arizona crossing. Crew size: 12 Total Hours worked: 61.5 hours total (11 volunteers 5.5 hours each, 1 volunteer 1 hour) Total feet of trail maintained: 3960 feet (0.65 miles) Crew Members: Dave Edwards, Jerry Mitchham, George Sherman, Jon Sheldon, Ruth Feldon, Carlyn Taggart, Greg Sweel, Kirsten Rosselot, Denise Pomonik, Jon Van Gorder, Juan Carlo Medoza, and 1 other volunteer.
