Document Description
This project is to stabilize, remove and restore a hill climb at Opal Peak by controlling the water volume and velocity within the trail tread. A series of erosion-control measures will be implemented over the length of the trail to pull water off the abandoned and eroding trail tread. This project will also include the removal of the primitive route that leads to the hill climb. The removal, closure and restoration of the hill climb, along with the removal, closure and restoration of the primitive route will not limit or reduce connectivety to any other primitive routes within the Park.
