The Culvert

Page 3 of 4

  

On the south side of the Culvert a triple road runs along the old railroad grade. One road runs along the top, directly along the grade, while the other two runs parallel to each side.

In this picture, the main railroad grade is in the center running off to the right, while one of the parallel side roads is on the left.

All of the pictures on this page are of this area (except the last one). 

  
Looking back at the Culvert (reversing the view of the above picture).

People drive their 4x4s, ATVs and dirt bikes anywhere.

  

This picture shows how far the soil has been eroded!

There's about 3-4 vertical feet of exposed tree roots here. 

  
A close-up view of where people drive from one of the roads to the other, down the embankment any old place.

Heavy erosion occurs here during rains.

  

Here you can see the massive, overall erosion and destruction.

The railroad embankment runs across the picture, just above the center.

At one time this would have all been forest! 

  
But Tracker students aren't the only ones concerned about what's happening here.

Someone has built this barricade across one of the side roads in the hope that it will stop vehicles. Although it's ugly, it is somewhat effective.

Unfortunately, dirt bikers regard it as a a challenge!
