Same location, after “de-berming.”  Water can run across and off of the trail now instead of eroding the tread.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Six volunteers plus SFCT’s Trails Program Manager worked from the north side of Hyde Park Rd. to about halfway up to Junction 10.  The work consisted of mostly de-berming and “nicks” and smoothing out a problematic, gullied turn.

Dave Wilson is determined to eliminate erosion and smooth out a gully to make this big switchback more sustainable and  a lot smoother.
