After last winter’s rains, the Wood Canyon Vista (Backbone) Trail in Sycamore Canyon (Pt Mugu State Park) was in pretty bad shape with deep ruts and loose rocks. The outside of the trail had collapsed in places. It was much more than could be fixed during the annual Santa Monica Mountains Trail Day last April. To repair the trail, the State Parks maintenance staff ran a Sweco (miniature bulldozer) down the trail to broaden and level it.
Now we need to add proper drainage to the trail to make sure the ruts don’t reform this winter!
CORBA will be giving away some great prizes to mountain bikers who participate, including a pair of Ergon grips! Go to our events portal page to register so we’ll know how many tools to bring.
BRING: water, lunch, work gloves, eye protection, sunscreen, hat; wear sturdy shoes, long sleeve shirt, long pants. Tools are provided. For some general information on trail work and what to expect, visit our Trail Crew page.
Meet at Wendy Dr & Potrero Rd in Newbury Park for shuttle. From the 101 Freeway take Wendy Rd. south to the end of the road at Potrero Rd. The meeting time is 8:30 am. We will drive from there down to the bottom of the trail, but you may ride your bike in instead if you like.
This is a joint project with the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council.
