State Trails Day 2016, Jesusita Trail

Big thanks to all that spent their Saturday making Jesusita Trail a little bit better! A lot was accomplished by a dedicated group of  trail users, user groups, and of course the City, County, and USFS


Trail narrowing with berm slated for removal

 Good as new

Mustard encroaching on the trail

Post Storm Cleanup, Jesusita Trail

Winter Storm Prep and Repair on Jesusita Trail - water drain opening and tread repair


This water drain was hardly recognizable and didn't prevent H20 damage

After, storm ready

Cutting of this switchback left a large chunk of trail missing

After, support rock in place and good as new

Post Storm Clean-Up on Rattlesnake Canyon Trail

Water runoff from Gibraltar Rd cut a deep groove into the trail

After- the tread is uniform and source of runoff eliminated

Tree down on lower trail

After

Lack of water drainage caused pooling and mud on the trail

After- improved drainage will prevent trail mudding
