This is what the trail looks like now, in 2012:
Broom is a huge problem on this part of the mountain and MMWD is constantly organizing "broom pull" volunteer projects. If you love Mount Tam, consider volunteering! Maybe you have a group of friends or work colleagues who are willing to spend a few hours giving back? I don't see habitat projects for Yolanda scheduled this month, but there are several other broom pull projects planned. Or get a group together and offer your services to the greater good of lovely Yolanda Trail!
