Work Activities: Most trail reconstruction will consist of hand work. This will include construction of stairs, rebuilding the trail bed, construction of water bars, bucking of down trees, brushing of overgrown portions of the trail, covering and eliminating reroutes and other standard trail construction needs dictated by the lay of the trail. Materials such as rock, wood or earth will be used to construct these structures. Dead brush may be dragged to the site to help break the visual line of the path or cover reroutes.
