Document Description
This project is part of the SVRA's rotational hill climb program where select hills are rotated over time through rehabilitation process that provides for a balance of recreational opportunity and the rehabilitation of the area. The trails will be temporarily closed for recreation. Entrenched trails will be brought back to grade by replacing eroded soil back onto the tread of the trail in a manner that will limit accelerated erosion and the concentration of storm water. Soils will be sourced from the SVRA's sediment basins. Ground disturbance will be limited to dry weather. Heavy equipment will include, but is not limited to, a bulldozer, water truck, and loader. Hand tools may be employed for trail finishing work. Wattles, native seed, straw and/or hydro-mulch will be used to stabilize bare soils. Disturbance to existing vegetation will be minimized as most of the soil placement activity will occur on existing bare soil. An estimated three acres of existing non-native vegetation will be disturbed. An estimated six acres of native grasses and forbs will be planted.
