Ken Burton Trail Restoration Day 4

Ride in 8 miles and 2000′ to the work site

On Sunday, December 13, more than 25 CORBA and Mount Wilson Bicycling Association volunteers came out to help restore the Ken Burton Trail. It was another highly successful day, with another quarter mile of trail brushed, re-cut and restored back to better-than-before-the-fire condition. Following much the same pattern our previous trailwork days have followed, our lead crew rough-cleared brush to reveal the old tread. Others followed with loppers to fine tune, then mcleods and pulaskis to remove the years of accumulated slough and restore outslope and drainage to the tread. We worked on approximately a quarter mile of tread, including the first three (of more than 20) switchbacks, and began prepping the trail beyond that.

Our crew was excited to have John Watson from The Radavist join us with a crew to shoot video and photos of our day’s work. They did a great story and photo gallery, available at: http://theradavist.com.  Click on the photo to scroll through their gallery of great shots.  They also put together a great video capturing the day’s efforts.

Our next work day, weather permitting, will be on January 10, followed by January 24.  Sign up to our event on Meetup.com/corbamtb, or on Facebook.
