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.
