NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Re-route +/- 750 yards of trail on the West Englesman trail in Wilder Ranch State Park to prevent erosion and improve visitor safety. Work will manually excavate and use a small trail machine to reduce the trail width from 8-12 ft. to 4-5 ft. and harden an approximately 200 ft. long portion with class 2 base and crowned. Rerouted trail segment will be more effective than repair work and subsequent maintenance to the current alignment. Install a 16 ft. long puncheon to span the head of a drainage area; cover all disturbed areas including the segment of trail to be abandoned with mulch and allow to recover with recruitment from the adjacent grasslands. All work conducted will follow the standards and specifications of the California Recreational Trail Plan.
