Four volunteers joined the Trails Volunteer Coordinator at the “Upper Vista del Freeway Trail,” a single-track trail that connects Via Arista to Avenida Rincón northwest of the interchange between US84-285 and the Santa Fe Relief Route. This location was chosen because the trail is primarily south-facing and had some very specific maintenance needs to be addressed.
The primary task of the day was to clear out three culverts and re-pack and reinforce the trail surface crossing over them. One more culvert was simply removed and the trail surface reinstated in its place. The volunteers also de-bermed a problematic section of gullying near the bottom of the trail, which ends with some large stone steps located across Avenida Rincón from the paved Cañada Rincón Trail.
