SFCT Trail Committee Chair Bill Johnson puts in a new tread to help get trail users out of the mud north of Junction 5, on Aug. 5.

Volunteers returned to La Tierra Trails for four work days in August 2016 to complete the re-route between Junctions 3 and 5 and perform maintenance work elsewhere in the western portion of the trails.
