Document Description
Construct new loop trail approximately 4 feet wide by 6550 lineal feet from the Thermalito North Forebay Day Use area along topographic contours to the North and West with connection to the Brad Freeman Trail at each end. Previously-identified road excavations will be re-used where possible. Tread excavation will be confined to the first few inches of ground surface with a 3 inch overlay of decomposed granite placed to complete the trail tread. In rocky soil, 3/4-inch aggregate will be added before tread overlay is placed. Should any project activity result in exposure of potentially-significant archaeological resources, work will cease until the find has been evaluated and an appropriate data treatment program is designed and implemented. Such cultural resource management activities will be conducted by or under the supervision of a California Department of Parks and Recreation qualified archaeologist.
