REDDING, Calif. – Recreation trails on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management are ready for the busy spring and summer seasons, as crews have finished repairing fire and winter storm damage.

“We owe a huge thanks to a crew from AmeriCorps, members of the Redding Trail Alliance and trail enthusiasts who volunteered with us to get the trails ready for use,” said Jennifer Mata, manager of the BLM Redding Field Office.  “Some worked seven-day weeks for more than a month.  The reward is seeing people back out on the trails, hiking, bicycling and riding their horses.”

Mata said the volunteers and BLM staff cleared thousands of trees downed and damaged in the Carr Fire and the Valentine’s Day snowstorm.  Workers repaired footbridges and built new ones, replaced and repaired damaged culverts, and installed new signs in most parts of the 130-mile trail network.

Mata also noted that most areas came through the winter rains in good shape.

“We were happy to see that erosion on the burned hillsides was not as bad as we feared it would be,” Mata said.  “Plants are sprouting, which will help stabilize the hillsides.  Some areas might even see good wildflower blooms.”

Information on public land recreation opportunities is available at https://www.blm.gov/office/redding-field-office, or by telephoning the Redding Field Office at 530-224-2100.
