Trail Work in La Tierra Trails

Mike EauClaire is recognized for being the #1 City Trail Volunteer in 2016, logging 28 events and over 84 hours for the year.

On April 5, the Trails Program Manager met with six volunteers to kick off the “regular season” for city trail work. ¬†We visited problem spots east and south of Junction 2, trying to help the trail drain off storm water by de-berming, putting in “nicks” or “grade reversals,” or clearing out the out-slope at other locations¬†that needed a little help.
