Document Description
Reroute the upper end of the multi-use Slaughterhouse Trail and re-design the user-created connecting route from the Trail to the campground at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park to provide appropriate grade, sight distance and turning radius for multiple uses. The new trail will have a tread width of 36" and corridor brushing clearances of 72" wide by 84" in height. All abandoned trail will be rehabilitated to reduce impacts and discourage use. Excavation will vary according to percent of side slope. Due to topography and soil type the trail is not able to meet ADA-compliancy guidelines for trails; however, the trail treads will be barrier-free; landings of less than 5% can be worked in at 200-foot intervals; and during trail construction, the route will be kept to a cross slope as near as possible to 5%. The trail will improve access to users with disabilities, but will not be recognized as an accessible section of trail. If evidence of potentially significant historical/archaeological resources is discovered at any point during the project, work will be suspended until the find can be assessed by either the District or Service Center archaeologist.
