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!
Lack of water drainage features on Cold Spring Trail began to cause a deep channel to form. Front Country Trail Coordinator Chris Orr worked in cooperation to prevent future damage by adding water drains along the trail in key spots.
Arroyo Burro Trail, one of Santa Barbara's first trails but also most neglected trails. It has been years since any erosion control has been performed on this trail and it is showing with a high degree of erosion from recent rains. Water drainage features or water bars as they are more commonly called have now been repaired in many key areas to prevent further water damage.
