The Water Bureau road that
comes down from
Skyline Blvd to Leif Erikson Dr. used to continue
on down from Lief Erikson (you see the old gate there)
into the deep, steep-walled gulch and up the opposite
wall to Springville Rd. (you see the gate there, too).
|This piece of road was barely driveable with four-wheel drive thirty years ago. The "road" became even more aged becoming creased with deep wrinkles (erosion, that is) and as a road died. Mother Nature is currently restoring her gulch with slope-stabilizing roots of lush vegetation.|
