Topo map of Guadalasca Trail, and the section we worked (upper-left). The area that was Sweco'd is shown in bright red; the section that we finished is the darker line within the Sweco's part. North is up.

On Wednesday, State Park trail staff Dale drives the Sweco to the top of Guadalasca. Here it comes up Hell Hill, as seen from the Wood Canyon Vista (Backbone) Trail.

Immediately after the Sweco has levelled the trail, it's pretty rough and loose. We'll fix that in a couple of days!

On the next ridge is Wood Canyon Vista (Backbone) Trail where we worked last week. The light fans of dirt below the trail show where we installed nicks to drain water off the trail. Hell Hill is at the bottom of the picture

An old sign has the name misspelled. It should be Guadalasca, with an "A" at the end.

The work is to smooth out the trail from the rough form it had after being Sweco'd, and give is a slight outslope so water will run across it, rather than down it and cutting a new rut.
