Construction Crews Prepare for a Busy Spring Near Sawyer Camp Trail

A new sight you can expect in late April is a large crane along the shoreline of the Lower Crystal Springs Reservoir near the southern end of Sawyer Camp Trail. Don’t worry, the large equipment is only here temporarily -- and when the project is complete there will be permanent improvements to the great view pictured below.

Work on the Lower Crystal Springs Dam project is moving forward rapidly, especially as we enter the dry season. Crews may work some nights and weekends in the area in order to complete major construction before the rainy season begins next winter.

Many trail users last month noticed our team recording a video along Sawyer Camp Trail. The pre-construction survey is finished, and you may see additional tree cutting along the trail in the coming weeks. This work is supervised by biologists and is a carefully monitored process.

Sawyer Camp Trail remains open, and will be closed only for short intervals during construction. Subscribe to this blog for updates.
