It’s no trick—you’ll be able to work off your Halloween treats the next day, when the entire Sawyer Camp Trail will reopen for weekday through use.
The Tuesday, November 1 reopening follows the three-month closure of a southern trail mid-section on weekdays for public safety during habitat restoration.
Our crews will continue to work in the area, and one more closure of the mid-section, for a few hours only, may be necessary later in November. Signage will be posted at the trail entrances.
Also coming up is a brand new resurfacing of the trail’s entire southern half by spring 2017. This will require a closure from the southern entrance to the Jepson Laurel for approximately two weeks, and notices will be posted in advance.
Over the next couple of years, we’ll also keep watch for any re-sprouting of the invasive, non-native acacias. Acorn plantings will follow as soon as the area is ready for them.
The work in the Sawyer Camp Trail vicinity is part of a long-term project throughout the watershed to bring back and maintain about 180 acres of native oak woodland and grassland habitats—and the many plant and wildlife species that depend on them.
Our thanks to the Sawyer Camp Trail community for your patience and cooperation!
