School is back in session and the hot weather is expected to start which means there will be many children spending time at the Environmental Education Center at Rincon. Because there is a parking area on the Rincon Shortcut, the Forest Service would like to see children and parents walk along the access route that the San Gabriel Mountains Trailbuilders put in rather than have them walk along Highway 39.

So today the Trailbuilders returned to Rincon to remove growth from the access route, rake back the poison oak, and perform general clearing and cleaning so that the trail can be used a bit more easier.

* Part of the access route after most of the growth is removed
* Brush and poison oak gets removed from the access route
* Stairs along the hillside makes going up and down much easier than otherwise
* The education center
* The rock-lined erosion control channel is working great!
