Over the weekend, we had a group of college volunteers help us lay some gravel over geo-tech fabric in the worst areas of the Eagle-Heritage trail. That whole section was also mowed. While this is more of a quick fix, it should really help. It was pretty dry so we'll see how it holds up next spring.
The City was unwilling to pay the price of a boardwalk which it what we really wanted for the area. They spent $850,000 on a boardwalk in a park in town, and got this area repaired for a couple hundred bucks.
They did pony up around $800 worth of lumber for us to repair/rebuild some of the ramped sections later this fall.
The wider sections of trail should be getting mowed soon, and the big downed trees will be removed. Once the Chapter gets its new trimmer, we'll be able to mow the rest of the trail. As for ramping the recently fallen trees, they are in the "old lady" trail section which we want to keep free of the harder obstacles. We're trying to keep the ramped areas together in the same section so they are easily avoided.
I just want to live the life I please.
I don't want no enemies.
I don't want nothin' if I have to fake it.
