A destructive fire started near the trailhead of the Roaring Lion trail in 2016. The fire burned really hot and as a result, the first few miles of this trail are difficult to discern. We will be working on re-defining the trail tread, closing off social trails, and building small retaining walls as appropriate. Though we will not be hiking to the worksites very far, digging tread in the hot sun is hard work! The rewards will outweigh the challenge as we re-establish the trail so that the public can continue using this local trail.
