Document Description
The proposed project involves the construction of an unpaved recreational pathway to accommodate hikers and equestrians. It would be an ~1,300 feet long and 4 feet wide, base rock surfaced path on balanced cut and fill, with switchbacks as narrow as 3 feet. The northern segment would include two crossings of local streams (Deer Creek and a tributary of Deer Creek). The streams would be crossed by constructing wooden footbridges. Due to steep terrain and switchbacks, timber crib or tie-back retaining walls would be required on certain portions of the pathway.
