Construct an approximately .75 mile long Post Creek Trail at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park to allow visitors to hike to the nearest commercial area in Big Sur along a safe trail in the redwoods. Trail construction work will brush and clear vegetation, excavate trail surface and install rock crib retaining walls, open rock culverts, rock ripraps, and soldier piles with lagging and retaining walls. Trails will then be re-surfaced with crushed aggregate. Work crew will follow the Departmental Trail Guidelines Best Management Practices to prevent inadvertent spoils from soil surface at the sign locations; excavate and install concrete footings in holes measuring approximately 2 foot wide by 3 foot deep to install four (4) signs to provide visitors with park information in safe, visible locations.
