sandy trails

Parts of Ameri-trail have some really long and deep sand deposits from the springtime floods. Primarily between the first and third pipeline crossing. The park management is aware of the problem and will eventually try to get the sand cleared. Peach creek trail also has some deep sand, but only two much shorter sections. This area may be able to be cleared with hand tools. Meanwhile, Dogwood, Yaupon, Peach Creek Loop, and Forest trail are in good shape.

A group of volunteers has cleared about 2/3 of the deep sand on ameritrail. As of Dec. 17th, only one deep sand section remains to be cleared near primitive campsites 3&4.

A lot of the sand has been cleared by group of Ameri-corps volunteers during November and December.
