Work Activities: This project will allow the public safe and unimpeded passage to the trail that start at or near each lake and lead away into the wilderness area and backcountry surrounding . The work will include contouring portions of the path, and building earthen water bars for erosion control, if needed. Materials such as dead brush may be dragged to the site to help break the visual line of the path. Trail reconstruction will consist of mainly hand work. This will include construction of stairs, rebuilding of the trail bed, construction of water bars, bucking of down trees, brushing of overgrown portions of the trail, and other standard trail construction needs dictated by the lay of the trail.
