Trail Crew - trail work at TBOP

March 7, 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 5th switchback to the Upper Jucntion and farther up the Lookout Trail to the 1st switchback.

This work improves the tread back to original specifications with a slight out-slope to shed rain off the trail.  

The moisture in the soil makes for perfect conditions 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.
