Project to restore erosion damage along the Northwest Branch hiker-biker trail

By Andrea Kenner

Here are some photos I took this morning of the work that has already been done to restore the section of the Northwest Branch Trail near the power lines that cross Cool Spring Road.

They laid the big rocks along the curve of the creek and built up the bank beside the part of the trail that had eroded away. It looks like the next step will be to roll out some new asphalt and repave the missing parts of the trail.
