SDMBA, in partnership with the Cleveland National Forest, has recently completed a reroute on the upper portion of the Noble Canyon Trail. The reroute, which is approximately 1/3 of a mile long, eliminates two unnecessary and dangerous road crossings while reducing erosion by laying the trail out in a more sustainable location than the previously fall-line section of trail. SDMBA volunteers have put in numerous days since February building this new section of trail, which was officially completed and opened to the public June 14. Due to the current drought and lack of soil moisture the new trail’s tread is currently loose, dry, and dusty is some sections – this will improve over time as the trail gets ridden in and we start to receive rains. In the coming weeks SDMBA will assist the Forest Service in closing down and rehabbing the old and deteriorated trail section that has been rerouted. Thanks for all the hard work by those that volunteered to get this project accomplished!
