Things are progressing very well for our team up on The Incline!
Construction of timber walls has been completed, bringing our focus toward rip-rap boulder walls which are being constructed using 45 + tons of rock. Some of the rock being utilized was collected off the mountain itself and transported via pulley systems out of the woods and to the trail.
Many storm water chases are now in place. These will serve to direct water away from the trail when it rains to save the trail from further erosion. When the trail re-opens you will notice that many drainage swales have been constructed 5-10 feet away from the trail to provide further protection from run-off.
Next week we will have three helicopter delivery days to fly in topsoil and additional riprap boulders.
