Document Description
The project consists of placing 30- 6x4x4 posts, side-by-side about 4-6 feet apart in the scour zone of the Sweetwater River channel where the Cold Stream Trail crosses before it meets up with the East Side Trail (behind the Dyar house). The fence will demark the existing trail as it crosses the river and narrow the crossing point to discourage hikers and horses from wandering up and down the stream banks. The purpose of the project is to reduce impact to a population of the Federally Endangered Arroyo Toad, which uses the Sweetwater River at this crossing to breed in the pools and to hibernate in the sandy banks in the winter months. District Archaeologist has determined that there will be no archaeological impacts.
