Up on the Cliff – Trail building

9 December, 2012 at 22:00
We were back up on Upper Cliff this weekend to sort out a potential wheel trap of a hole that had developed not long after the start of the descent. Initially, the plan was just to fill the hole but after spoting a water gully in the bank at the side of the trail, the job grew into digging a sump and installing yet another pipe – if a job’s worth doing …..
Whilst one team were working on that, two more were working their way down the trail filling smaller holes, cleaning the woodwork and de-berming the edge of compacted pine needles to improve drainage.
To finish, there were a couple of information panels to plant above the black rock sections – you need to know what you’re letting yourself in for.
