Alpine Road repairs

Alpine Road needs some culvert cleaning. Otherwise big washouts will continue to plague the trail.

Saturday I headed up Alpine Road to check out some alleged grading done near the intersection with Page Mill Road.

Although we had a quarter-inch of rain, the trail stayed dry, at least until the graded section a quarter-mile from the top.

My road bike’s meager brake clearance jammed the wheels tight with mud. So much for road repairs. Had it not been graded, things would have been better.

What I find curious is that culverts are not maintained. The one shown is mostly blocked. It’s this lack of maintenance that leads to catastrophic results, as we have witnessed in years gone by.

Enjoy the road/trail while you can.
