Trail 12 (Mapache)
(1995-1996; 12 days; 190 vols.): Siltation above Searsville Lake and in the lake itself, resulting in rising water tables, had forced winter closure of the trail. We rerouted of 4 sections of trail to raise it above swampy areas. Included 2125 ft. of new trail construction, 450 ft. of maintenance, a 24 ft. bridge and an 80 ft. bridge/boardwalk. Since neither bridge was near a road, we had to haul in prodigious amounts of lumber and a generator. The project was featured on a short segment of a TV program.
(1997; see Trail 11 , 1997): Brushing, reroute of 150 ft.
(1999; 1 day; 19 vols.): Short reroute of a section built in 1996 that was in danger of washing out. The creek shifted dramatically after storms in 1997/1998. (See Trail Center Notes, this issue)
