The next section to be worked on was a section of trail up a mild hill that had some braiding issues and rutting. The FS had already ripped and smoothed most of the trail, so the objective was to cover the (former) trail with small branches, rocks, and trees to create micro-dams to disrupt runoff and control erosion. The steeper sections were to be covered with the erosion control matting to stabilize the soil. Finally, some large dead trees along the trail would be dropped to block the former trail and help with erosion control.
