Donn Longstreet led a crew of 10 volunteers in cleaning up some of the narrowed single track at Elings Park in preparation for their Semana Nautica race on July 4th. We worked on the south facing slope to rebench and deberm, widening the trail bed and improving water drainage.
Baird King and Jimmy Hopper joined us, fresh from an IMBA sustainable trail education event in Ojai the previous weekend. They brought their new knowledge to help us sculpt and place trail nicks and manage areas of current water erosion.
The sun came out of the marine fog just as we finished work and the pizza and salads arrived. Everyone enjoyed food, beer and intense stories of scuba diving in the Channel before heading off for Saturday afternoon plans.
