Document Description
Construct a 380-foot trail reroute from Walker Road to the Simspon-Reed Grove Trail at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park to eliminate the existing access from Highway 199 and improve vistor safety. The construction technique would be a wall-less turnpike, consisting of imported aggregate compacted in place without curbs and 5 feet in width. Trail work will remove duff and organic soil layer down to mineral soil, apply Class 2 aggregate 6" to 9" thick along the trail corridor and shape into a crowned cross section. Compact the aggregate in lifts to ensure a firm non-deformable, well-drained surface and install a new directional sign at the intersection with the Simpson Reed Trail.
