Rattlesnake Damage Repaired - 6/10/15

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?

National Trails Day, June 6th 2015, Romero Canyon Trail

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.

The volunteers gathered at the trail head

Rattlesnake on Rattlesnake Canyon Trail - 3/27/15

This little guy decided to curl up right in the middle of Rattlesnake Canyon Trail.  Semi-burrowed, he was well hidden, just waiting to get stepped on or snap at some unsuspecting passerby.  

 Although he looks rather big in the photos, when coiled he was only about 4 inches in diameter and about 1 foot in length when he decided it was time to leave with encouragement from a tree branch.
