On Saturday, Jan 12, 2008, volunteers from the Friends of Turkey Creek assembled to continue their work to improve portions of this popular off-leash dog friendly hiking trail. Led by Glenn Gadbois and Emma Long Park Manager Alberto Perez, we built the second half of a natural rock retaining wall at the firt crossing, improved the walk down to the crossing on the other side, as well as installing stepping stones at the Y portion of the trail (where it splits into a loop) and hardened several sections of the trail. I helped with the rock wall retaining wall. A great group of volunteers worked hard and many friendly thanks and wagging of tails from trail users on that day. Pictures show (in order) the new section of the wall installed on 1/12, the previous section of wall (with improvements) installed on 12/1, and the revamped path down to the crossing on the other side of the creek.
