Document Description
The purpose of this project is to improve an existing section of road to use as a bypass for a rocky section of McCray Road. The project is located in the Upper Ranch of the SVRA near Hector Heights. The goals of the project are to improve existing trail drainage, maintain an existing trail and improve it to be used as a bypass, to preserve a challenging 4x4 obstacle, and to restore unnecessary/redundant trails. The trail to be improved is in need of routine maintenance, which will include brushing the trail to park standards, pulling in the outside berm to reestablish the trails outslope, and to install new drainage features. Roughly 200 feet of trail will be rerouted. The tread of surface of these trails will be ripped open to promote water infiltration. Any hydrology altered by the redundant trails will be restored to pretrail conditions. These areas will be seeded, replanted, and erosion and sedimentation best management practices will be installed. No trees will be removed as a result of this project. Vegetation at the project locations consists of species common to north slope oak woodlands intermixed chaparral species.
