Trail Crew - trail work at TBOP

February 29, 2024

The ALPS Trail Crew volunteers performed more tread work on the trails at Three Bridges Oak Preserve. 

The crew continued work on the west leg of the Oak Woodland Loop Trail above the 4th switchback to just above the 5th switchback.  The tread work helps to improve the tread back to original specifications with a slight out-slope to shed rain water off the trail.  

With the recent rains, the trails are in perfect condition to work the ground and re-shape the trail.  ALPS uses hand tools to shape the dirt and then compacts the trail with a plate compactor.
