This summer’s late rain storms wreaked havoc on many of our popular trails due entirely to the excessive amounts of water that came down in such short amounts of time. This left many of our trails rutted with loose rocks strewn everywhere.
With the help of nine volunteers, DMBTA spent the morning rehabbing the Barrel Roll and Precipice in the Santa Clara River Reserve. Countless loose rocks were removed, ruts were broken down and filled and switchbacks were out-sloped to help prevent future damage.
We would like to thank the following individuals for their time: Shelly Lutz, Kathleen Berglund, Jay Bartlett, Dave Poffenberger, Frank Kosidowski, Phil Benson, Kenny Jones, John Scarafiotti and Lukas Brinkerhoff.
Even with the work put in, there is still plenty more to do. Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Facebook for upcoming trail days.
