Pillar Point Bluff - Road Rehab Project

Prior to Oct 15, 2017, County Parks will resurface the packed earth Jean Lauer Trail and the old rutted dirt farm road extending south towards Princeton. The new trail surface of compacted base rock is intended to provide all-weather emergency access the length of Pillar Point Bluff.  Rolling dips will be repaired or added to improve drainage off the trail.

MCC provided County Parks with a slide presentation on trail surfaces in Sept 2016, pointing out the desirable natural feel and appearance of compacted native soil trails as installed by POST on Pillar Point Bluff in 2007.   Suggestions were also provided for aggregate paving, such as using natural brown color rock and blending native soil into the last 3-inch lift of crushed rock to soften the color and texture of the finished trail.  The County has provided no details on the project specifications, so we’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
