Fixing a Mudhole on the Second Loop Trail

Ryan and I (Rich) arrived at 10 Am and hiked a good part of the park heading to the north end to discuss issues and solutions for the Cabin Trail. Although our original intention was to fix a drainage issue on an already heavily armored stream crossing on the Second Loop trail, we discovered on our walk back, a large goopy mud hole rutted already with tire tracks on a usually pristine section of the Second Loop Trail.

We spent over an hour cutting a knick (cambering the trail) to allow the water to drain off to the side. Once finished we recovered it with a scattering of leaves to blend in.
