Brush and limbs will be cleared along the paved bike path and shoulders to re-establish the trail clearance, two to four feet beyond the outside edge of each trail shoulder. Brushing will be completed to State Parks standards, including pruning standards. Cut vegetation will be chipped and broadcast or cut and scattered away from the trail.
