Previous Events on this Trail
This was a routine planned trail maintenance event. A crew of 11 met at the Day Use Parking lot at Leo Carrillo State Park at 8 a.m. After signing-in and discussing the goals and objectives for today we conducted a safety talk and split into 2 groups with one group returning to a short section of the Nicholas Flat Trail which was not completed on our recent event, while the other group began work on the Camp 13 Trail.
The first group encountered another nest of ground dwelling yellow jackets near the same location they were previously found. Several volunteers were stung and/or bitten. This first group made a hasty retreat and joined up with the other group.
Now all of us worked together with 3 hedge trimmers to trim the brush encroaching into the trail corridor. While the trimmers trimmed, the supporters who followed raked and cleaned-up the cuttings using rakes, McLeods, loppers and folding hand saws. Lots of mustard, deerweed, and laurel sumac was removed to restore a well-groomed trail corridor. We made very good progress. We ended work at 1:30 p.m. and then we hiked back to our meeting place at 2 p.m. We anticipate on returning this Wednesday, October 4th.
We cleared approximately 0.4 mile.
