PWV continued to pursue its mission of assisting the Canyon Lakes Ranger District programs managing and protecting the wilderness and backcountry areas in 2022. In support of our core effort of patrolling trails and engaging the public, we contacted more than 9500 trail users while completing over 800 patrols.

These contacts allow us the opportunity to support backcountry users with advice, information and education on Leave No Trace practices and for USFS regulations. We continued our efforts to maintain trails last year at a high level, removing over 2100 trees from trails and clearing brush and limbs from over 2700 feet of trails.

Furthermore, in 2022 restoration efforts focused on erosion control on the trails, installing check dams, culverts and drains. PWV worked to improve drainage on 10 miles of 8 of our trails. We held numerous workdays including 4 days with volunteer members of the public in addition to the 12 workdays with PWV members and 8 days with a hired work crew. This amounted to 1838 hours of trail work to restore the trails after the 2020 Cameron Peak fire.
