The Mohican Outdoor Center (MOC) Trail Crew had a good first weekend back on the trails in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The weather started out a little wet on Saturday, but dried up nicely. Sunday was clear, cool and windy. Eighteen crew members were out and about performing trail assessments and routine trail corridor maintenance.
On Saturday the MOC Trail Crew went to Toms Creek Trail and Childs Park. They cleared several blowdowns and re-opened a culvert including rebuilding the washed out culvert/crossing.
On Sunday the crew members mainly worked on wet areas of the Rattlesnake Trail. They worked on drainage issuses by cleaning/improving existing waterbars, putting in a new channel, two new rock/6x6 turnpikes, and stepping stones. Hopefully this will help get everyone across the wet areas, and keep them on the trail!
