There has been some good upgrades and maintenance recently in Mills Canyon. The DJ is reporting the story here and notes
Weeks of work refining the secluded and narrow trail culminated Tuesday, April 19, as workers with the California Conservation Corps cleared brush from the path which spans a little over a mile in the Burlingame hills east of Skyline Boulevard, near Arguello Drive.
The final day of trimming put a finishing touch on the work which began last month that included building new stairs, regrading the trail for storm drainage, adding more steps, reducing erosion threats, widening the trail, implementing new retaining walls and more.
This part was interesting to me also since kids are sometimes in there at night partying
The dirt trail is open daily for free to members of the public to enjoy, along with their leashed dogs. No camping is allowed on the property, which closes at nightfall.
Outside of the recent beautification efforts, Holtz said volunteers are often responsible for clearing non-native species which may grow along the trail, as well as cleaning out the rare occurrence of litter being left behind.
I thought I would take a look at the Crime Map (that you can find here) for the last two weeks and see how it's been going. It's been quiet in the canyon so we will see how it goes as the school year comes to an end.
