Document Description
This project is focused on controlling the runoff in a sensible and responsible way so the conveyance of visitors and protection of resources is sustainable over time. The limits of the project will extend from the entire parking lot down to the bottom of the upper staircase. The parking lot will be graded, and material added to get the runoff to go where it was suppose to, off to the southeast. Culvert strip-drain will be removed and a curb installed to direct runoff in that direction. A new ramp entry to the trail will be created where the original entry was located. Shrubs will be trimmed back to accommodate the trail entrance. The chemical toilet will be moved out of the enclosure near the trail entrance and be placed near the ADA chemical toilet near the parking lot. The Auto Pay machine and its solar panel will be moved to the northwest side of the new trail entrance. Erosion gullies in the trail will be filled with material to create a more sustainable grade. Along "The Turn" and "bluff Face" portions of the trail, a series of timber steps filled with gravel and/or decomposed granite and a flexible drainpipe will be installed for more sustainable runoff management along the trail.
