Adopt-A-Trail, Trail Report # 1

Trail:  Tip Top Mountain, 2N90, 2N90A, 2N90B & 2N90C

Club:   Capo Valley 4 Wheelers

Reported by: Bob Schaich (Capo Valley 4 Wheelers Adopt A Trail Co Coordinator)

Date:  Saturday, Nov 13, 2010

Weather: Clear, 55 Degrees

Work Performed:   Drove over to the Adopt A Trail shed at the ranger station and picked up a new club decal for our adopted trail sign. Some one had removed part of the existing decal from the sign located at the beginning of the trail. I installed the new decal. I then drove down our adopted trails 2N90, B, & C looking for trash and any areas which might need immediate attention such as removal of downed trees across the trails and areas which might need immediate anti erosion work. I was very pleased to see that there was no trash to pick up. I replaced a few mile marker stakes on 2N90 at mile points 1.236, 1.287, 1.304, 1.323 and 1.339 as these markers were hard to read.   Our trails are in good shape and it appears that they are being used quite often due to the amount of tire tracks in the dirt.
