The major undertaking of the work party last Saturday was the placement of four water bars on the lower portion of the trail from the property line up to the first creek, or Honeymoon Creek.
The county specified no more than fifty foot seperation and logs of at least 8-10 inches in diameter. The logs were to extend completely across the trail and extend, or overhand, over the downhill side. Bare, who has experience putting in water bars and trail erosion measures, directed the efforts . . . and we hauled huge fallen trees onto the trail and downhill to manhandle in place. Each water bar got three spaced rebar stakes to secure them in place and on the uphill side the dirt was backfilled to control flow sideways instead of under the water bars.
