MOJAVE NARROWS HIKING/RIDING TRAIL RESTORATION
This winter's near record rainfall proved very destructive to the equestrian riding and hiking trails within the Mojave Narrows Regional Park. Trails were destroyed not only from rain but also from the release of potential overflow water at the Mojave River Dam into the Mojave River. Through joint efforts among the district, San Bernardino County, and Pilot Rock Conservation crews, the majority of the trails have been restored. Thirteen inmates from Pilot Rock and their Captain worked for two days under district staff supervision. The men used chainsaws to cut downed trees blocking the trails and filled in areas that were scoured out by the flooding. As a result of this work, the Mojave Narrows Regional Park trails are safe for horseback riders and hikers who want to experience a unique desert riparian area.
