Project Description

The Pioneer-Cabin Trail project will replace sixteen water bars with rolling grade dips. The sixteen existing water bars, located in the first 3 miles of the trail, no longer function. Consequently the trail has become “v” shaped and has widened to nearly 6 feet in places and has developed braided side trails paralleling the eroded sections. The rolling grade dips, are the preferred structure for long term, low maintenance trail drainage. The goal of the project is eliminate progressive erosion of the trail and restore the tread back to its original 24 inch width.

Travel Info
