Sunnyside Flattop Trailhead

Sunnyside Flattop Trail Take 2

This project involves lots of trail touch-up. The trail needs to be brushed back in some spots and some sections of trail are in need of better drainage options and tread work. There is a lot of double-tracking, trail creep, social trails, and sloughing to address.
