Document Description
The objective of this project is to remove the existing Long Canyon hillclimb motorcycle trail (1,600 feet) and restore the area to natural conditions. The trail is located within the Lower Ranch of Hollister Hills SVRA. Because of the soil type (decomposed granite) and steepness of the trail, persistent soil loss has occurred, maintenance is no longer practical and the trail is currently un-useable by riders. It is the intent of this project to remove and rehabilitate the trail and return it to a more natural configuration, and to restore the site to become again part of the surrounding chaparral plant community. The project will be implement in March, 2007.
