The trail work has started in Glen Canyon. What’s happening now seems reasonable; they are widening and flattening a popular trail, and adding native plants.
However, it also apparently involves “decommissioning” a social trail (the dark orange line on the right side of the map photo; click on it to get a larger, more legible version). And of course, park users are supposed to “Stay on Trails” – says the “Significant Natural Resource Area” sign, ironically attached to a eucalyptus tree such as the ones they’ve just felled.
Later, we have been told, the Trails Project will be felling another 35 trees (latest estimate, up from 30).
