The section of trail we worked on is about fifteen to twenty minutes above the Harvey Creek footbridge on a steep sidehill approximately 35-degrees in angle. The trail was originally constructed by that giant of a man, Paul Binkert and a large number of BCMC volunteers. It was a well-constructed trail with many long switchbacks to prevent trail erosion. During last winter's storms a couple of switchbacks were annihilated by blowdown. This led to extensive shortcutting by hikers as essentially the trail was obliterated. The trail at the switchbacks has now been restored - for now.
