In late February I started a hike in the Grand Canyon by going down the Kaibab Trail. A trail crew of about 30, men and women, mostly volunteers,were rebuilding major sections. (Mules are off the Kaibab this year, so hiking it is a Real pleasure.)

Trail Building Section
Here is one section getting rebuilt from the ground up.

Trail Building Come-along
Big boulders are used to waterbar and bound the trail. This guy winches them up.

Trail Building Steering
This guy does the steering.

Trail Building Bins
These folks build the bins.

Trail Building Filler-Upper
And this guy fills them up, one bucket at a time.

My hat is off to them!

That looks like a road to me, not a trail.
