This narrow section of trail just below the meadow has been a growing hazard for the last several years. This part of the trail was barely one foot wide and shrinking, a missing 2 foot wide hole was opening wider and cutting more into the tread with a long steep fall into the creek below.
After- wide and safe, can you find where the hole was?
Special thanks to the agencies and all the volunteers who helped make National Trails Day on Romero Canyon a success! Lots of work was completed opening up trail narrow by slough, slides, and brush. In addition, long lost water drainage features were reinstated, and short cuts were eliminated.
Over 30 people joined in with the USFS, City and County of Santa Barbara to bring the West Fork Trail some well needed maintenance. Removing downed trees, cutting brush and widening narrow tread were just some of the tasks successfully completed. Big thanks to all that participated!
