View of the trail we worked, courtesy of Google Earth, looking from the north-west. Zuma Ridge Motorway is visible in the lower-right corner and Kanan Rd is towards the upper-left. The section of the trail we completed is shown in blue (2.0 miles); the section we need to return to is shown in orange (0.5 miles).

Most of the work we did was clearing the overgrowing brush

We split into two groups. Four worked mostly on digging drainage dips to channel the water off the trail...

We had two youngsters along whose job was to drag the cut branches and stash them off the trail...

We ended up with a huge (huge!) pile here because there was so much growth to cut back
