Joe Chavez of the USFS asked me to pass along the good news that all downed trees have been taken out of the Bullards Bar trail system. Those of you who have ventured out there in recent months know what mess it had become. Volunteers are still needed for sections where the trailbed itself was damaged. We will accomplish this at our 4/23 event and open up the rest of the trails for the season.
As for the major erosion canyon west of Dark Day, it still remains. The USFS plans to repair this during the fall with a contractor who will fill in this section and carve in the trail (no reroute will occur). The CA Department of Boating and Waterways will fix the cause of the problem, which is runoff from a recently-built parking lot.
