Arroyo Burro Trail North Survey - 08-09-2016 - by Los Padres Forest Association
Link: Arroyo Burro Trail North
Date: 08-09-2016
Surveyor Name:Los Padres Forest Association
Trail description:All downed trees have been "removed" from the trail but there are still a handful of smaller trees/branches that could be removed with a Silkey hand saw.  The trail as a whole could use a Spring cleaning.  The tread needs work and brushing throughout PLUS some additional help on larger projects in select areas.  Would be a great trail to Adopt and work on over the years.  

Recent signs of horses along the trial, quite a bit of PO and even a few bear prints.  There was water along the lower stretches.  Good trail to mtn bike ride.
Mode of transport:Bicycle
Trail condition:Needs some work
