We had the Wilderness volunteers, Friends group members and BANWR maintenance working on the Arivaca creek trail. Collectively we put in over 350 hours of improvements to the trail and built a ramada shade structure. The trail had severely eroded walkways, tripping hazards and fallen trees.
We repaired the walkways with a combination of ladder stepping logs with backfilling to create steps and to divert water from the downslopes. Rock was brought in to create better tread and rock dams on smaller declines. Our seasonal Volunteers repaired and painted the kiosk, rebuilt benches, and did vegetation clearing. I am very pleased with the outcome of all the work, we had a lot of positive comments from the trail traffic through the week. Looking forward to continuing improvements on our trails.
I want to thank everyone that helped and supported the project
