MP 196.0 Maintenance: cutting back on overgrown chaparral

MP 196.5 – MP 197.25 Hazard: Trail sliding down sideways on very steep slope with very little vegetative cover. Needs more than re-benching.

MP 200.75 Equestrian issue: 10-15 feet of trail literally gone where trail crossed over a steep watercourse rock chute – only a goat can cross it

Hiked up from Snow Creek Village to just below Fuller Ridge, then back down. A few bushes in the way between 4,000 and 5,500 feet .. but much improved below that where trail work was recently done. Beehive located at 3500 feet in a rock outcropping next to trail. They are very aggressive and were stinging all hikers. My buddy and I got nailed both up and down the trail on May 11th. Through hikers make sure you have plenty of water on this hot and dry descent into the Coachella Valley.
