Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The County of Orange is proposing some improvements as part of the Borrego Trail Restoration and Rehabilitation Project (proposed project). The proposed project entails restoration of water conveyance and safe recreational uses within portions of the wilderness park. Phase I of the project would restore accessibility to the entrance of the park within the existing Borrego Trail network, which would involve the excavation of approximately 579 cubic yards of accumulated sediment and the restoration of the 12 foot wide access road near the park's entrance via placement of an aggregate base and associated drainage improvements. Phase 2 of the project would address the multiple trail and road wash-outs along the middle and upper portions of Borrego Canyon Wash which resulted from significant rain events during 2010-2011. The proposed improvements would involve the placement of boulders and cobble from available locations within the creek in order to create berms. The created cobble berms would be further supported by new riparian planting that would help achieve the safe and continued use of the unimproved recreational trail.
