1 Appendix A (Project Specifications) Auk Auk / Black Diamond (Trail 44) Reroute I. Proposed Action: This project proposes to reroute approximately 1,800 feet of a 50 inch wide trail, off of private property (see project map). II. Proposed Activities Include: Trail construction: Water control measures will be installed in accordance with Forest guidelines o Trail construction will be between 2% and 8% grade this allows water to be controlled in a manner that will minimize adverse erosion and loss of trail surface; o The use of techniques such as the brake and grade (change in slope of the trail tread) and climbing turns will be implemented This will reduce the number of rolling dips depends on the slope or cross drains needed which will reduce the amount of soil to be displaced and effectively divert water from trail surface yes if we put in a rolling dip. Catch Basins will be constructed in association with rolling dips. The existing road across a drainage will be retained and hardened with 6 to 12 rip rap. Procedures and BMP s for trail construction will be followed as is outlined in R5 FSH Soil and Water Conservation Handbook, and chapter 10 of the Water Quality Management Handbook. Install Barriers: Install 8 X 8 X 8 railroad ties to close off OHV access to private property. o The railroad ties will be secured by placing rebar anchors at each end of the 8 X 8 X 8 ties, these anchors are driven into the soil approximately 1 foot deep into the soil. Install Fencing: Install fencing consisting of T-posts and wire to close off access to private property. o Existing 3 wire barbed fence are available for use at the northern portion of the reroute. The fence can be repaired to help prevent public trespassing on private property. T-Posts will be driven into the ground approximately 10 feet apart and 1 foot deep. Restoration of Old Trail Segment Any portion of the old trail segment remaining on Forest Service land that leads to the adjacent land owner s property will be camouflaged with straw, brush or mulch to the property line. 1

2 o Camouflage materials will consist of spreading straw, brush or mulch to disguise the old trail from future continued use. This will also help to limit erosion and promote plant growth. III. Equipment: Mechanized equipment designed to fit on a 50 inch trail width will be used. IV. Design Features Archaeology: A1 The district archaeologist or heritage resource staff will be notified well in advance of proposed activity to identify known sites in or adjacent to the Area of Potential Effect (APE). If modifications are proposed for the project heritage resource concerns must be addressed. A2 If new archaeological evidence is encountered during project implementation all ground disturbing activity in that area will cease and the district heritage resource staff or forest archaeologist will be notified to evaluate the resource before work proceeds. A3 There are no heritage resource properties located within or immediately adjacent to the APE. Prior to project implementation the Grindstone Ranger District heritage resource staff needs to be notified to ensure that known sites are identified by appropriate flagging. Botany: Invasive Plant Species B1 - Lay out the trail corridor to avoid the need to remove large shrubs. B2 - All trail-construction equipment shall be washed before bringing it into the project area. Include this as a requirement in any contracts used for this project. B3 - Monitor the project area for at least three consecutive years after treatments are completed. Thereafter, integrate weed monitoring into regular trail condition monitoring. Determine the need for subsequent weed control practices. B4 - If mulching is necessary for erosion control, use certified weed-free straw, brush generated during the project, or wood chips from weed-free areas on the forest. Sensitive Species 2

3 B5 - Survey route again in 2014 and 2015 to document presence or absence of sensitive species. B6 - Control dust during trail construction in order to avoid reducing photosynthesis or pollination of sensitive species that may be near the construction area. Geology: G1 - During implementation, all workers should review, sign, and follow the Mendocino National Forest s Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) for Naturally Occurring Asbestos. o Water should be used, when practical, to minimize dust during trail construction if dry soil conditions are encountered. Hydrology: H1 - Vegetation cleared for trail construction near ephemeral draws will be placed on the contour between the trail and ephemeral draws to act as barriers to illegal hill climb activity. If monitoring reveals that these are ineffective or have been moved, more substantial barriers will be constructed. H2 - To the degree feasible, locate new construction on natural benches, flatter slopes, and stable soils. H3 - Use out-sloping and rolling dip construction to minimize hydrologic connectivity of the trail and prevent water concentration, erosion, and sediment delivery to the ephemeral draws and the stream below. H4 - Construction of reverse grade water control features need to occur when soil moisture is sufficient to allow adequate compaction of the trail tread. H5 - Refueling and maintenance of any machinery will be done outside of Riparian Reserve of Stony Creek (300 feet from this stream) and the SMZs for ephemeral draws (20 feet on a side). H6 - Any excess fill material generated needs to be placed on low gradient segments of the completed trail or in designated locations. Excess material must be placed so they remain stable. H7 - Maintain or recondition erosion and sediment control features to function on the existing trail from Stony Creek to the start of the new trail construction. H8 - Mechanized trail machinery should be able to approach the new reroute segment form the north via Road 18N03 on Black Diamond Ridge. Mechanized trail machinery should not cross Stony Creek at the Mine Camp Ground Location. 3

4 Best Management Practices (BMPs) The following checklist contains BMPs that will be applied to this project. This checklist will be used before, during, and after construction to insure compliance with the USFS water quality Forest Service Handbook Soil and Water Conservation Handbook Chapter 10 - Water Quality Management Handbook. BMP Planning Minimize the number of stream crossings Avoid locations near wetlands (for example, seeps, springs, marshes, and wet meadows) Favor existing trails over new construction when less damage to water quality will occur Avoid locating new trails on areas prone to mass wasting Avoid locating new trails on slopes steeper than 55 percent Avoid locating new trails on slopes steeper than 45 percent where the erosion potential is high or extreme Limit steep pitches to less than 200 feet BMP Location and Design Locate trails and drainage structures to minimize hydrologic connectivity. Limit the number of watercourse crossings to those needed to meet the recreational objective. Maximize the filter distance between the trail and the water body. Locate drainage structures where dispersion or absorption of runoff is effective. Avoid sensitive areas such as riparian areas, wetlands, meadows, bogs, fens, inner gorges, and unstable landforms. Design and space trail drainage structures to remove storm runoff from the trail surface before it concentrates enough to initiate rilling. Where trails cannot be effectively drained by rolling the grade or using reverse grades, provide trail drainage using OHV rolling dips as specified in Rolling Dips for Drainage of OHV Trails, USDA-Forest Service, Pacific SW Region, January, Wherever possible, incorporate sediment basins at OHV rolling dip outlets instead of lead off ditches. Where sediment basins cannot be installed, provide energy dissipaters at OHV rolling dip outlets. Design trails to be no wider than necessary to provide the recreation experience defined in the trail management objective. Incorporate design elements that discourage off-route use (for example, taking shortcuts, cutting new lines). 4

5 5 BMP Watercourse Crossings Avoid long, steep OHV trail segments on approaches to watercourse crossings. Orient stream crossings perpendicular to the channel in straight and resilient stream reaches. Where possible, make crossing approaches short and level, or reverse the grade if possible. Install cross drainage (cut-off waterbreaks) at crossings to prevent water and sediment from being channeled directly into watercourses. Locate cut-off waterbreaks as close to the crossing as possible without being hydrologically connected to the watercourse. Armor steep crossing approaches with stable aggregate or trail-hardening materials. Design crossing approaches and nearby drainage structures to minimize hydrologic connectivity. Design watercourse crossing (ephemeral draw) to avoid diversion of flow down the trail should the crossing fail. Design watercourse crossing (ephemeral draw) for a 100-year storm event, to allow for unobstructed flow including bed-load and organic debris, and to provide for passage of desired aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Harden crossing approaches as needed to minimize soil displacement by traffic. Set crossing bottoms at natural levels of channel beds. Harden fords with gravel or cobble of sufficient size and depth to prevent movement by traffic. BMP Construction, Reconstruction Maintain erosion and sediment control measures to function effectively to prevent discharges of pollutants to surface waters throughout the project area during trail construction and reconstruction. Keep erosion and sediment control measures sufficiently effective during ground disturbance to allow rapid closure and site stabilization if the National Weather Service issues a probability of 50% or more for a precipitation event. Complete all necessary stabilization measures prior to predicted precipitation that could result in surface runoff. Do not operate equipment when ground conditions could result in excessive rutting, or runoff, that could deliver sediment directly to watercourses or water bodies. Side casting of soil within 150 feet of a watercourse is prohibited. Windrow slash and organic litter at the base of fill slopes to trap sediment. Construct OHV rolling dips when soil moisture is sufficient to allow adequate compaction of OHV rolling dip drainage structures.

6 Recreation: Guidelines for trail construction and maintenance: The following standards and guidelines will be applied during trail construction. R1 - R5 FSH Soil and Water Conservation Handbook Chapter 10 - Water Quality Management Handbook Exhibit 07 BMP Best Management Practices for Off-Highway Vehicle Facilities and Use (BMPs to 4.7.9). R2 - Regional Forester s direction dated November 8, 2002; follow the maintenance standards and guidelines in A Field Evaluation of the Use of Small Trail Tractors to Maintain and Construct OHV Trails on National Forests in California, USDA-Forest Service Pacific SW Region, August 22, R3 - Rolling Dips for Drainage of OHV Trails, USDA-Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Region, by Roger Poff, R. J. Poff & Associates, Nevada City, CA, under Natural Resources Professional Services Contract 53-91S8-NRM11, North State Resources, Inc., Redding, CA, Prime Contractor, January, R4 - Vegetative screens or buffers will remain to the extent possible to reduce visual impacts and no additional openings will be created by project activities in the foreground. 6
