Stile Ranch Trail Work Day

November 5, 2016

On November 5, 2016, REI and the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council sponsored trail work days all around the Bay Area. Volunteers met at the Pueblo Picnic Area. These are pictures from the work day.

Kitty and Bonnie were handling the lunch.

REI wrote a big check to the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council.

Trail crew member Eric talks about the work that needs to be done.

Volunteers pick up tools and gloves.

The group heads up the switchbacks of the Stile Ranch Trail.

The volunteers climb up the many switchbacks of the trail.

Crews head up the hill to the next site.

The next work site is down in the valley. The east-facing slopes and valley floor have heavy clay soil and are easily eroded.

Erosion on this part of the trail  can turn it into a narrow gutter. Crews are widening and sloping the trail to prevent this.

Work done, volunteers head back.

Lunch after the trail day.

Burritos were donated by Chipotle.

REI had a raffle.

This weekend, Trail Head Cyclery was holding their annual Fall Dirt Demo. Mountain bikes by several manufacturers were provided to rent to try out on the trails. Many mountain bikers were using the trail we had worked on.
